Dear Green Party - the time for Coromandel electorate is now
MP Sandra Goudie quitting Parliament
Coromandel MP Sandra Goudie has announced her retirement after three terms in Parliament and will not seek re-election later this year.
The Greens should rewake the ghost of the Governments plan to mine the Coromandel and have Russel Norman run hard in the Coromandel and put to rest once and for all the sub 5% threshold bogeyman by winning the electorate back to the Greens.
Purple Ford driving Goudie proves the electorate aren't too uptight and the huge lead she leaves the electorate with is up for grabs, a high profile Green MP could make a difference in the electorate.
