McVicar Announces in Napier

McVicar Announces in Napier


Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Garth McVicar has today announced his intention to stand as the Conservative Party Candidate for the Napier Electorate.

The straight talking Hawkes Bay farmer is known throughout New Zealand as a tough advocate for law and order, with the courage to stand up for decent kiwis.

Not afraid to take on the system, Garth brings the common sense, decency, and family values that mark him out as a great Conservative Party candidate for the people of Napier. A lifelong resident, Garth knows the electorate inside out and has a strong support base across the Hawkes Bay.

Garth is an exceptional fit for Conservative Party values says Party Leader Colin Craig. We acknowledge the tremendous work Garth has done across New Zealand for nearly 13 years. To have a candidate of his calibre in this electorate is fantastic. This is a winnable seat, and Garth will make an excellent MP. It is time this man goes to Parliament.

Garth commented “working for the people of Napier and making their voice heard is the right next step for me. I am born and bred here, and strongly believe in making it the safe and prosperous place it once was. I will take my utter commitment and passion to parliament for the people of my home Electorate.

ENDS
