Tauranga wants a New Start

Date 5th March 2008

Press Release
For Immediate Release. Tauranga wants a New Start.

“We a need a good cleanout in Tauranaga,” Hans Laven the Republican candidate was told by one women voter, when he launched his electorate campaign last weekend.

“The New Start offered by the Republic of NZ party, is exactly what is wanted here,” said Mr Laven.

Many are not happy with Clarkson or Peters. Tauranaga voters will have a lot more on offer come Election Day, said the Republicans social development spokesman.

Clarkson doesn’t really want to be in the house, and Peters has played the opportunity card once to often.

The Republicans spoke to hundreds of voters around the Tauranga electorate over the weekend and detected a greater volatility in the Bay than ever before.

Questions ranged across the whole of the 5 Ways Forward policies and much encouragement prompted Mr Laven to say,

“I’m looking to the election……anything could happen here!”
