Taxpayers’ Union Appoint Ben Craven as Campaigns Coordinator
The New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union has appointed former New Zealand First staffer Ben Craven to be the Union’s Campaigns Coordinator.
Craven was a parliamentary researcher reporting to Winston Peters for two years and has also worked in the public sector as an advisor.
“Ben brings a strong understanding of both the parliamentary and public sector environments,” says Taxpayers’ Union Executive Director, Jordan Williams. "His focus will be on ensuring the Union remains a strong voice for taxpayers in the corridors of power and continues to expose excessive and wasteful government spending.”
Mr Craven says, “As we approach the election, I look forward to assisting the Taxpayers’ Union as it grows and ensures that the true cost of political promises are understood by the public.”
Mr Craven holds a BA in Politics and Philosophy from Victoria University of Wellington.
