Government name calling doesn’t help vulnerable kids
11 DECEMBER 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Taxpayers’ Union is slamming the Government for wasting $418,000 of taxpayers’ money, meant to help the country's most vulnerbale kids, on a ‘rebranding’ of the Ministry of Vulnerable Children to Oranga Tamariki.
“This is a shameful waste of money and precisely the sort of Wellington nonsense which gets up the nose of taxpayers,” says Jordan Williams, Executive Director of the Taxpayers’ Union.
“No one resents paying taxes to help those most in need, but wasting nearly half a million dollars of money earmarked for helping vulnerable kids on marketing experts, logo designers, and sign writers, is disgraceful.”
