Negotiating our economic, social, and environmental future

Clayton Mitchell
New Zealand First MP

The most important thing for all New Zealanders to know right now after the election results is that New Zealand First will be working to help form a government in the interests of all New Zealanders.

We have the honour of being the third largest party in parliament and are determined to make sure that things get better for New Zealand.

We will be focusing on economic, social, and environmental policies. Increased benefit in one or two, at the expense of the others, will see us going backwards.

An economically strong New Zealand with working Kiwis sleeping in their cars and un-swimmable rivers is not the New Zealand any of us want. A clean and green New Zealand, with high unemployment and negative trade and economic data will not work either.

All coalition negotiations will focus on all three – economic, social, and environmental policies – to build a highly-skilled, added-value, export-driven, home-owning, and fairness-focused New Zealand for all New Zealanders to be proud of.

What is important is a fair day's wage for a fair day's work, heading back to a healthy home, in a beautiful and safe country.

We will be focusing on fairness and equal opportunity. We will do whatever it takes to make sure that New Zealand is put first. We are humbled by the trust voters put in us. Any accommodation with other parties will be to safeguard the economic, social, and environmental future of New Zealand.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
