Sean Fitzpatrick to Stand in Mana
Leading local martial arts instructor and
school owner Sean Fitzpatrick is to stand in the Mana
by-election for the Libertarianz Party.
Party has an optimistic and positive view of the people of
Mana," Fitzpatrick says. “They are hard working, generous
and independent – the kind of folk all Kiwis pride
themselves in being.”
Fitzpatrick continues, "This is in
sharp contrast to the negative view from the other parties,
especially Labour, who treat them as incompetent serfs to be
guided and goaded, and furthermore take their electoral
support for granted."
"This election is a chance for the
good people of Mana to start taking control of their own
lives by voting Libertarianz," Fitzpatrick concludes.
