Adams holds key to East Coast Bays

East Coast Bays candidate Paul Adams could hold the key to governance for National when the final votes are counted.  

As a former MP campaigning in his third election for East Coast Bays, Mr Adams has arguably mounted the strongest campaign, visiting households with a compelling message, “vote for me and not only will you get both Murray McCully and I in parliament: but it’s an extra seat that not even Murray can give to National, a seat National may well need to seal the numbers to govern,” says Mr Adams. 

“The recent boundary changes effectively made East Coast Bays a National stronghold. But ironically, voting for McCully is not in the best interests of those desiring a National-led Government. A vote for Paul Adams will give East Coast Bays a second MP and the National Party a much needed ally,” he added.
