Double Dipping MP Should Pay Money Back
7 MAY 2014
Reacting to today’s Fairfax coverage of NZ First MP Tracey Martin being paid more than $70,000 as a Rodney local board member - on top of her almost $150,000-a-year MP's salary, Taxpayers’ Union Executive Director, Jordan Williams, says:
“Being an MP is a well paid and full time job. Ms Martin should pay Auckland ratepayers back for the double dipping."
“What an outrageous sense of entitlement to be accepting payment from ratepayers while sitting in Wellington as an MP. Winston Peters should be demanding the money is paid back to Auckland ratepayers, and paid back now."
