CEAC Mourns After The Death Of Jeanette Fitzsimons

In 2000 we had the pleasure of meeting Jeanette Fitzsimons at a Green Party meeting at a café in Napier, and she instantly radiated such warmth of humanity towards every soul there.

My wife and I felt she was a gifted person who spoke softly but sent clear messages of ‘common sense’ to us all.

Then in 2001 Jennette accompanied by Rob Donald whom were both co-leaders of the ‘new Green Party’ were embarking on a full effort to confront the declining environmental stewardship of past Governments, advocating for widespread changes to make NZ a ‘clean-green’ society again.

We then decided to join this worthy cause as we were planning to begin a family life again in Napier after being overseas for 10yrs.

Jeanette touched our hearts and will be forever missed for her exceptional love of humanity and care of her communities she had part in taking care of.

We join with NZ First and Labour partners to send our condolences to Jeanette Fitzsimons family and friends after the sad news on Friday that Jeanette had passed away.

It is extraordinary that unions should be having to explain to employers (and to the public) just how unfairly the burden of such a response would fall. Basically, if you’re on a salary in six figures, a 10-15% haircut can still be worn fairly lightly. If you’re employed at or below the median wage, losing 10% of your income can be a hammer blow...

Gordon Campbell: On National's Regulation Crusade

Lets step back in time now, to simpler days and to simple-minded solutions. So…. if National gets elected, landlords will once again be able to evict tenants at will, raise rents anytime they like, and ignore the need to install a healthy standard of heating in the homes they put out to rent. This promised ‘bonfire of regulations’ is being done in the name of cutting red tape... More>>
