James Shaw to host public meeting in Rotorua

Green Party Co-leader James Shaw to host public meeting in Rotorua

What: Green Party Co-leader James Shaw and Rotorua Green Party candidate Richard Gillies are hosting a public meeting in Rotorua.
Where: Rydges Hotel, 272 Fenton Street, Glenholme, Rotorua.
When: Thursday 22 June 2017, 6.30pm - 8pm.

Green Party Co-Leader James Shaw is hosting a public meeting on Thursday to discuss the Green Party vision for Rotorua and Aotearoa – one built on a smart, clean economy that works for everyone.

“Rotorua has a diverse economy which will benefit from a range of Green Party policy proposals, including boosting Manufacturing and introducing Country of Origin Labelling laws, says Green Party Co-leader James Shaw.

“With unemployment 1.6 percent higher than the national average, and with the number of people severely housing deprived rising by over a hundred since 2006, the people of Rotorua need solutions.

“I’m also keen to talk with people about how the Government and communities can work together to clean up our polluted rivers and lakes. Too many lakes are affected by nitrogen, phosphorus run off, and leaching that cause weed growth and poor water quality.

“New Zealanders face a clear choice this election year, and I’m really excited to share with the people of Rotorua the positive, progressive vision the Green Party has for Aotearoa New Zealand,” said Mr Shaw.
