By GILL ALCOCK ' Ten percent of the vote will give us 12 MPs and that's what we're aiming for these elections. It's definitely doable. ' Denise Roche Green list candidate Denise Roche fills the num- ber 11 spot in the Green Party list of candidates for the 2011 election which was announced on Sunday. As three women MPs will retire by the time of the November election, there will be room for a new crop of women candidates higher up the 2011 list, Greens co- leader Metiria Turei says. Highest ranked of the new faces is Canterbury's Eugenie Sage, a former regional coun- cillor, placed at number six on the party list. Wellington's Jan Logie, who stood for the Greens in the recent Mana byelection, is at nine. Ms Roche, who is described on the Green Party's website as another experienced local body politician'', is at 11. Mrs Turei and fellow co- leader Russel Norman fill spots one and two, with the party's five other current MPs who are standing again, also in the top eight. Ms Roche, who spent three years as councillor for the Hauraki Gulf Islands and is now serving as a Waiheke Local Board member, says she is absolutely thrilled'' to be number 11 on the list. She will be standing for the Auck- land Central electorate along- side incumbent National MP Nikki Kaye and her Labour counterpart Jacinda Ardern. It's an incredible privilege to have gotten this far and I join a line up of incredibly tal- ented and committed people in the first 15 on the Green Party list. It's not a dead cert that I'll be an MP after the elections in November. The Greens have nine MPs after getting 7.8 percent of the party vote last time. Ten percent of the vote will give us 12 MPs and that's what we're aiming for these elections. It's definitely doable,'' she says. Ms Roche says the contest for the Auckland Central electorate has now become way more interesting''. We could end up with three MPs. How's that for excellent representation in Parliament?'' If Ms Roche does get into Parliament she says she would resign from the Wai- heke Local Board. I don't think it would be fair to our community to attempt to do both,'' she says. That would mean that there would probably have to be a byelection for a new board member although I'm not that clear on the process because in some circum- stances it's permissible to co- opt the next highest polling candidate from the previous elections.'' St John Youth needs leaders The theme for this year's St John Youth Week is based around stepping up and taking responsibility. St John is asking for volunteers to step up as a leader for the St John Youth community pro- gramme and take res- ponsibility in encourag- ing the development of youth cadets into friendly, fun and confi- dent young adults. Waiheke youth man- ager Gina Ford says: Our volunteer youth leaders don't need first aid experience or qualifications. They need to be able to com- municate with youth. As we accept all children, some of which need one-on-one sup- port, the more youth leaders we have to help the better it is for us.'' St John Youth is growing fast, particu- larly in the Northern Region where member- ship has reached 2435. The non-profit org- anisation is keen to find further volunteer leaders to assist in the running of its divisions. Leaders are provided with ongoing training and support to enable them to run the youth programme. Youth members meet once a week for about an hour and a half. Visit www.stjohn.org. nz or phone or text Ms Ford on 027-489-3555 to find out about becoming a St John youth leader. Police arrest two men Police arrested two men this week. The first, on May 25 was of a 20-year-old man from Onetangi who was arrested for the alleged theft of a cash register in 2009 from a Mangere shop. A warrant of arrest was issued after he failed to appear in the Manu- kau District Court The second arrest on Friday involved a 38-year-old Oneroa man for disorderly behaviour, behaving threateningly with a weapon, possessing an offensive weapon, assaulting a man and resisting police. The incident followed a youth meeting at a church which led to a complaint about the noise levels generated by the young people, a police spokesperson says. The man is to appear in court this week.
