National will deliver for seniors

National deeply values New Zealand’s senior citizens and recognises the immense contribution that you have made to this wonderful country. No matter your stage in life, nobody is immune to the effects of sky-high inflation, which is driving the cost-of-living crisis and creating more pain for Kiwis at the checkout,...

Labour is in it for you

I firmly believe that after a lifetime of hard work, everyone in this country deserves to retire with financial security and support. Labour’s first policy of the 2023 election campaign made a range of commitments to give New Zealanders certainty about their retirement. I know that people are finding it...

Standing up for seniors

This general election is the most critical of our lifetime. Why? Because the New Zealand we know and love is hanging by a thread. Things are failing everywhere, all at once. Our economy is imploding, our healthcare system is broken, and all our costs are going skywards. We need to...

Policies rooted in fairness

For too long New Zealand governments have eroded the dignity of our senior citizens who have provided a lifetime of work, taxes and support to get the current generation to where it is today.

If central government increased taxes at a rate greater than inflation every year for 20 plus years – there would be rioting in the streets – but that is what central government encourages local governments to do – every year. As the country’s demographics change and the population ages, new...

Doing basics well

I know things are tough for many New Zealanders right now. That’s why this year’s Budget is practical and does the basics well. It focuses on easing the cost of living pressures New Zealanders are facing, while making targeted investments that will grow our economy into the future. When I...

National will get New Zealand back on track

Every month it is the same story; the cost-of-living crisis is hurting New Zealanders every day, yet this Labour Government is refusing to help and unfortunately, is making it worse with their addiction to spending. National will stop wasteful spending, provide tax relief and deliver the skills, infrastructure and innovation...

It’s clear that we’re facing big challenges in the future

We hear stories every day from people who are worried about the future. They’ve seen the impact from continual climate-related weather events.
