DSC chooses Barry Pulford for Napier

MEDIA RELEASE
Thursday 15 May 2014
DSC chooses Barry Pulford for Napier

Experienced campaigner Barry Pulford will fly the Democrats for Social Credit flag in the Napier electorate this election.

Barry recognises the need for good transport infrastructure to support the local economy.

“Storm damage closed the Gisborne-Wairoa-Napier railway line two years ago. Since then, freight has been trucked and travellers take the bus through this difficult terrain. I want the line repaired and re-opened for freight and passenger services, without further delay.”

Barry Pulford's vision for NZ includes strong conservation values and a basic income. His qualifications in environmental management reflect his concerns about contemporary issues such as water and air quality.

“Waste minimisation and/or pyrolysis, clean water, clean air, and a GE free New Zealand are my priorities.”

Barry lives in Flaxmere and works in the retail grocery sector.

He serves his local community as a member of the Flaxmere Community Patrol, as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Hawke’s Bay YHA, and as a committee member of the Ahuriri Estuary Protection Society.

Barry also serves the wider community: he belongs to Kiva Kiwis, a group of people living in or having links with NZ, connected with Kiva Microfunds commonly known as Kiva.org and KivaZip.org. This non-profit organisation allows people to lend money via the internet to low income/underserved entrepreneurs and students in over 70 countries. All the loans distributed by KivaZip.org are at 0% interest to the borrower.
Barry Pulford is the Democrats for Social Credit Party’s Environment and GE Issues spokesman.

Pacific Spying: Mass Surveillance Of NZers Confirmed By Former GCSB Director - Contradicting PM John Key

Scoop Editor Alastair Thompson Reports: Yesterday morning former GCSB Director Sir Bruce Ferguson confirmed mass surveillance of New Zealnders in the Pacific is taking place as revealed in the latest Snowden leaks investigated by Nicky Hager. In 2013 John Key told press gallery reporters that in the event mass surveillance was found have been conducted by the GCSB, he and the director of the GCSB - his childhood friend Ian Fletcher - would resign. As the controversy deepens a year and half later Fletcher has already resigned. But will Key? More>>

Gordon Campbell: Legal Fudging Of The GCSB Revelations

As many have noted, the Hager/Snowden revelations of the spying by our security agencies on our Pacific neighbours and allies is a virtual re-run of the pre-election debate. It is a situation where the government (a) stonewalls, (b) baldly asserts that mass surveillance is not occurring despite the Snowden evidence that it is, and (c) claims that the GCSB actions were lawful. Yet as Greens Co-Leader Russel Norman says, this can be true only if the legislation passed last year by the Key government has made the mass surveillance of New Zealanders – and the related handing over of their private data to the NSA – lawful.
