New Zealand First Endorses Pacific Leader

August 10 2011

New Zealand First Endorses Pacific Leader

New Zealand First is proud to officially announce Asenati Taylor as their Candidate to contest Manukau East electorate in this year’s General Election.

“Mrs Taylor is a proud New Zealander of Samoan descent who represents a brand new breed of politician emerging from the rank and file of New Zealand First.

Furthermore, she is an outspoken Pacific leader with extensive experience in community development, local government affairs, and Justice and Corrections sectors in New Zealand.” said NZ First party leader, Rt. Hon. Winston Peters.

Mrs Taylor strongly believes Manukau East has been left in a shocking state of neglect by Labour who has taken this electorate for granted for far too long.

Asenati is determined to see that Manukau East no longer has the dubious honour of having the highest unemployment rate in the country. She is standing for New Zealand First because it’s the only Party that has the ability to hold the current Government to account and as such represents a point of difference this election to provide the help that New Zealand communities need.

“When it comes to New Zealand First policies, there are no grey areas. Unlike all the other political parties, New Zealand First is black and white. A large number of our Pacific voters have now joined New Zealand First in support of its policies, principles and values.” said Mrs Taylor.

Asenati Taylor is a strong advocate for positive change and firmly believes that “help is on its way!” for Manukau East with New Zealand First back in Parliament this year.
