John Key unveils new election hoardings
National Party Leader John Key is helping hammer in the first of a new series of election hoardings in Hamilton today.
"At this election New Zealanders face an important choice. They will choose whether to support a strong, stable National-led Government that remains focused on the things that matter, or Opposition parties that advocate complicated new taxes and increased borrowing."
Mr Key says each of the seven hoardings features a part of National's plan to grow the economy, build exports, create jobs, reduce debt and improve public services.
"Kiwi families understand that New Zealand and the world have faced significant challenges in the past three years. The National-led Government has worked hard to take the rough edges off the recession for the vulnerable, and at the same time get our books back in order sooner.
"An earlier return to surplus gives future governments more choices, and National is focused on that goal."
The seven hoardings feature the following messages:
1. Balance The Books Sooner
2. More Exports, More Real Jobs
3. Rebuilding Christchurch
4. Tax And Welfare Incentives For Work
5. Building Roads, Rail And Fast Broadband
6. Less Debt And Lower Interest Rates
7. Staying Strong On Crime
This is the first seven in a series of hoardings about National’s plans.
