List MP Jo Hayes, who's the candidate for Mana, will be replacing her billboards with fresh ones after many have been vandalised.

"They're getting a bit of a hiding out there on the hustings," Ms Hayes told 1 NEWS.

"People are wrecking them, having a good old time."

While she's obviously miffed, she's approaching the problem with a good sense of humour.

"Lucky I've got plenty to replace them with."

Detailing some of the vandalism, Ms Hayes named three specific billboards yesterday which had been attacked.

One where her name was cut out; another where the wood was removed and then, in Paraparaumu, one hit with a dozen eggs

"All I say is those people have more money than sense; to waste food while others go hungry. Donate the eggs to a food bank, why don’t you!" she posted on Facebook.
