    Kia Ora,

    My name is Shardae a youth worker from Otara.
    I have identified a need for my current youth who have shown strong interest in being active leaders within the community.
    Young people are interested in understanding the political process and would like to make more informed decisions about who they should vote for.

    I am wondering if you would like to maximise this opportunity toengage in a discussion panel with other MPs?

    A young person of mine suggested this so we are going to allow young people to ask the questions as we screen and filter these questions,
    If you chose to participate, we will send you the questions a week before the event.

    I hope we can count on your support and involvement of our event 15 August 6-8pm.

    Warm regards
