BEN SAND­FORD RO­TORUA LABOUR CAN­DI­DATE

Rotorua Review - - OUT & ABOUT -

I want to achieve a lot in my first term. Re­duce home­less­ness and poverty, im­prove our strug­gling in­fra­struc­ture such as re­viv­ing rail and eas­ing our city’s bot­tle­necked high­ways. I want to en­sure our men­tal health ser­vices meet the needs of our com­mu­nity and grow Ro­torua as the forestry cen­tre of New Zealand. Af­ter 3 years I want to know peo­ple in Ro­torua are bet­ter off, our wa­ter­ways are cleaner, our econ­omy is stronger, and that our re­gion is an even bet­ter place to grow up and live than it is now. would be the Re­serve Bank Amend­ment Act which would im­prove the af­ford­abil­ity of Ro­torua for In­ter­na­tional Tourists. Also mak­ing our ex­ports more com­pet­i­tive, in­clud­ing our strong forestry and agri­cul­tural in­dus­tries. This would be cou­pled with mean­ing­ful in­vest­ment in rail and roads, in­clud­ing the Te Ngae up­grade. Im­me­di­ate pres­sures on hous­ing would be ad­dressed. NZ First would sup­port ef­forts by our local coun­cil to at­tract busi­nesses and their staff out of Auck­land, which would be­gin with a Min­istry of Forestry be­ing cen­tred here in Ro­torua. Work­ers (Kaimahi) to do so. Tak­ing care of the Peo­ple is what I would do. Maori Party will al­ways Manaaki Tan­gata. It is who we are. It is what we do.
