Brian Connell Holds Public Meetings in Electorate

Rakaia MP Brian Connell will undertake public meetings in his electorate commencing Friday 21 February 2003.

Connell says the public meetings are an important opportunity for voters and constituents in his electorate to have input regarding issues of concern.

Connell says he will target his speech on the following: -

Achieving sustainable irrigation for the greater province. Promoting economic growth and sharing wealth with all New Zealanders. Making progressive changes in education to ensure children get the very best education of which they are capable. Reducing the demoralizing prevalence of welfare dependency. One standard of citizenship for all New Zealanders regardless of race.

The way forward for New Zealanders is unity and enterprise, not division and dependency says Connell.
