ACT announces Ohariu candidate Sean Fitzpatrick

ACT announces Ohariu candidate Sean Fitzpatrick


ACT Leader Jamie Whyte is pleased to confirm ACT’s candidate for Ohariu.

“Our Ohariu candidate will be Sean Fitzpatrick. Sean has strong ties to the region and I’m glad to hear he will be doing his best to grow ACT’s party vote in the area,” says Dr Whyte.

Sean lives in the Northern Suburbs. He has been a personal trainer and professional musician and currently is a small business owner, having opened a full time family oriented martial arts academy in the heart of Wellington.

“My life experience has been that, whatever the circumstances, one can overcome setbacks and achieve wonderful things for oneself and for others, provided one is given a chance to do so. The only voice in New Zealand politics that expresses these values clearly and unequivocally is ACT,” says Sean.

“I'm looking forward to introducing Ohariu to ACT's plans to enact lower and flatter taxes and a three strike policy for burglary.

“The message of the ACT party is inherently positive and is aimed at that which is best in human nature: fairness, tolerance, industriousness and respect. By contrast other parties seek to appeal to that which is most base in human nature; greed, envy, bigotry and indolence. My whole professional and personal life is aimed at encouraging people to seek out the best in themselves and others, so ACT is a natural political home for me.

“New Zealand dearly needs a voice in parliament for individual freedom and personal responsibility. There is no question the best choice for that voice is Jamie Whyte and the only way to make sure that voice is heard is by giving ACT your party vote on September 20th.

So Martin Matthews, our current Auditor-General wishes he could have detected “earlier” the fraud that occurred on his watch at the Ministry of Transport. Hmmm. But he could have detected it earlier, surely? That’s the point.

Reportedly, some junior members of his staff had been trying to tell him and his senior colleagues in management for years about the fraudulent actions of Joanne Harrison... Not only were those internal alerts apparently ignored. Some of the whistle blowers were allegedly punished by losing their jobs, as Harrison and her colleagues in management took revenge on them...
