Conservative Message Results in Huge Membership Boost

Conservative Message Results in Huge Membership Boost

Since the Conservative Party campaign launch in early July, membership has flooded in and the Party now has achieved over seven thousand members and supporters.

“ We have been inundated with new members who have seen our newspaper ads and leaflets and like what we stand for “ says Christine Rankin CEO and newly elected candidate for Epsom.

“We have momentum, we have huge support and we are gaining members at almost a hundred a day, ordinary Kiwi’s who want to belong to a Party that knows what it stands for” she adds. Binding Referenda, tougher penalties for criminals, one law for all and a more straightforward tax policy are all things that make sense to voters.

“It is obvious the Conservative message is resonating positively with the general public and I suspect other Parties will be increasingly frustrated as they see our support base continue to rise.” Says Christine Rankin.
