To New Zealand First MPs

22nd August 2006

To New Zealand First MPs

A final plea - we know you don't like the Rating Cap Bill as it stands.

And we know you want a Commission of Inquiry - but have no time line for one.

But you must now know that the whole country is screaming for some control to be placed on increasing council rates.

And the whole country wants Parliament to address the problem.

The country DEMANDS that this Bill goes through to select committee.

And by the whole country I refer to all those supporters of NoMoreRates.com who live in;-

Invercargill Gore Dunedin Central Otago Oamaru St Andrews

Greymouth Westport Ashburton Christchurch Rangiora Mahana Nelson

Wellington City Lower Hutt Upper Hutt Johnsonville Porirua Whitby

Plimmerton Kapiti Coast Paraparaumu Waikanae Beach Levin South Wairarapa

Eketahuna Gisborne Palmerston North Feilding W(h)anganui New Plymouth

Napier Hastings Dannevirke Opotiki Whakatane Taupo

Mangakino Taumaranui Rotorua Tauranga National Park, Ohakune,

Raetihi, Ohura Ongarue Papamoa Hamilton Tairua

Coromandel Waiuku Papakura Manukau City Auckland City Ponui Island

Waiheke Island Waitakere City Henderson North Shore City Rodney District Waimauku

Snells Beach Orewa Kawerau Island Wellsford Puhoi Hikurangi Whangarei

Russell Kaitaia

These are just some of the places I have identified from the hundreds of emails I have received since starting this campaign.

PLUS of course the 95,000 strong Grey Power Federation - right across the country.

We are a truly nationwide campaign - and we wont go away!!!
