DATE: FRIDAY MAY 27 2005
David Reeks campaigns for Progressive party votes in Taupo

Matt Robson MP 021 909 936

The Progressive Party has selected David Reeks as its candidate in Taupo, where he will be campaigning for party votes in this year's general election.

"I am delighted to announce that David Reeks will be flying our party's flag in this year's election," says Progressive deputy leader, Hon. Matt Robson MP

"With an extensive background in manufacturing and engineering, I am very confident that David will raise the party vote tally for Progressive in the electorate," says Progressive deputy leader, Hon. Matt Robson MP.

"Progressive candidates are campaigning for peoples' party vote this year as your pro-economic development and anti-drugs insurance policy.

"If you support Jim Anderton's work to promote the development of our regional economies and favour increased investment in higher education, and if you want politicians to take the tough decisions on youth binge drinking and other youth drug problems, then our candidates' message is: Party Vote Progressive," Matt Robson said.

"For most of my working life, I have been involved with the manufacturing sector. I strongly support what the Progressive Party has brought to this coalition government's industry and regional policies and I look forward to getting out there and explaining why people should give Progressive party votes so we can continue with our important work in government," David Reeks said.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
