Destiny NZ Political Tour Wellington - 15 May 2004

Tuesday 12th May 2004

For immediate release


Political party Destiny New Zealand is presenting an overview of its policies in Wellington at a public meeting this Saturday. Party leader Richard Lewis will outline some of the party's key policies moving toward the next election while education spokesperson, Anne Williamson, and economics spokesperson, David Jesze, will also present policies.

"As a relatively new political party we have been working very hard at community level to inform the public about who we are and what we stand for," says Lewis.

One of the key messages the party will be presenting is its 'Family' policy.

"Having spent a large part of my career working at grassroots level in our communities, I have observed the drastic decline in standards and behavior among our young people and children," says Lewis. "This deterioration correlates highly with the breakdown of families in our society. Sadly, the present government does not value families. The mission of Destiny New Zealand is to make families the top priority for the next government."

Besides the party's strong family focus, it also supports business and export growth and success.

"Destiny NZ supports wealth creation instead of socialistic wealth redistribution," says David Jesze. "Not everyone can be an All Black, but with the right education, skills and leadership, those who want to can be world-class entrepreneurs and leaders in the business community."

Launched last July, Destiny New Zealand has built up a significant support base and plans to stand candidates in many electorates at the next election. The party has held public meetings throughout the North Island and in the next month has meetings planned for Napier, Tauranga and Gisborne.

Destiny NZ will be holding its Wellington public meeting this Saturday 15 May starting at 7pm at Wellington High School, 249 Taranaki Street, Mt Cook Wellington.
