As the most widely read left blog in New Zealand, the Standard is a regular stop for most Labour Party members who spend time online.
We think that offers candidates for Labour Party positions a great platform to get their ideas out to members and to debate them. Which is why, with nominations for various significant party positions closing soon, we’re offering candidates the opportunity to provide guest posts ahead of the conference in Auckland this year.
Democracy works best when people know who they’re voting for and the Standard is about democracy. So if you’re planning to stand for a Labour role and you want to speak to thousands of Labour members, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll make sure that your post is at the top of the site for at least half a day and will moderate comments. We’re hoping candidates who post also take the chance to engage in the comments so we can get to know who they are and what their vision for the party is.
