Brownlee: Ambitious for NZ – Meet John Key
Ambitious for New Zealand – Meet John Key
John Key launched a 12-minute DVD, "Ambitious for New
Zealand – Meet John Key". The DVD is intended to give
Kiwis a closer look at John’s life and what he stands for.
In it, he talks a little about his life before politics, the
things that motivate him, and his ideas for confronting some
of the challenges we face as a nation. You can watch the DVD
here on my website.
Over the next few
weeks, John will be travelling to around over 30 towns
throughout the country to introduce himself to as many
people as possible. He’ll be handing out the DVD wherever
I encourage you to tell your friends about the
DVD so that they also have the opportunity to get to know
John a little better.
I welcome your comments. Please
email me on email@example.com or have
your say at www.brownlee.co.nz.

OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...More>>
