ACT Epsom Candidate: David Seymour

From the ACT Epsom Candidate: David Seymour

Today I am very proud to be selected by the ACT Party to contest the Epsom electorate this 2014 Election.

As in previous elections, Epsom is likely to play a pivotal role in determining New Zealand’s future. By electing an ACT candidate, Epsom voters can enable the ACT Party as a reliable support partner for a stable John Key led centre-right government. Without such a partner we may see Prime Minister David Cunliffe and Minister of Finance Russel Norman.

Alongside this strategic reality, Epsom voters deserve to have the best possible local MP. I will be working hard all year to show Epsom voters that I can be that MP. An MP who is engaged, approachable, stands up for local people in times of difficulty, and represents Epsom values in parliament.

I have deep roots in Epsom. I have lived, studied, worked, volunteered and socialised here for much of my life. It is where my friends are and it is a part of New Zealand that I love dearly.

I believe in a collegial approach to politics – in working together within ACT and with our potential coalition partners to deliver stable, disciplined government. Such a government should set sound and stable policy that allows people to get on with building prosperous families, businesses, and lives.
Yours sincerely,
David Seymour
