Dragon_head Rob ThomasAuckland’s inner-city community has very unique needs. With the help of my campaign interns, David and Young-Eun, we have undertaken a four month campaign to connect with the both the Chinese and Korean populations of the inner-city.

18% of the total population of our ward is Asian and it’s critical that their voice is herd and represented. We are the only campaign to publish a bi-lingual flier, website and connect through the mandarin pages newspaper.

Last weekend I attended the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival held by the Chinese Student Associations in Freeman’s Bay. It was a spectacular event with over 800 local Chinese residents watching spectacular performances from Kung-Fu to Chinese comedy and a Chinese HAKA!
