Nomorerates Not Associated With ACT Fundraising

NoMoreRates.com
THE CAMPAIGN TO REPLACE THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF COUNCIL RATES WITH A FAIRER SYSTEM INCLUDING RESTRAINTS ON COUNCILS ABILITY TO INCREASE EXPENDITURE WITHOUT THE SPECIFIC APPROVAL OF THE COMMUNITY


27th July 2006 MEDIA RELEASE

Nomorerates Not Associated With Act Party Fundraising

The ACT Party has today launched a website soliciting funds to pay for some sort of letter writing campaign seeking suppport for Rodney Hide’s Rating Cap Bill.

NoMoreRates.com has NO ASSOCIATION with either the ACT Party – or any political party – and will not benefit financially in any way from the ACT Party’s fundraising.

NoMoreRates.com has not sought any funding from anyone at this stage – but has been offered financial donations by a numbers of supporters.

NoMoreRates.com has also made it clear that it’s primary aim at this stage is to pursuade NZ First and Green MPs to vote for a first reading of the Rating Cap Bill – we do not endorse the Bill as it stands but we do want the opprtunity to have input to a Select Committee on the whole issue of rates and local body funding, and this Bill is the way to get that done.
