If you’ve been forwarded this email by Jack, they want you to know that they’re backing ACT this year and they think you might too. You can join Mitchell here <[link removed]>.
It's not often the media leaves their comfort zone of being the 'Government cheer squad'. But this comment piece from NZ Herald Political Editor Audrey Young is an exception to the usual spin. Audrey is one of the few remaining old-school journos dedicated to her craft and well worth reading. Highlighting the importance of Accountability and Critical Thinking, she writes <[link removed]>:
"The best of the Opposition MPs were National MP Michael Woodhouse and Act leader David Seymour.
Seymour's contribution to the Covid-19 crisis was impressive from the start.
He had the advantage of being in a relatively secure position going into the crisis, with no incentive to grandstand, and an ability to distil political principles from complex situations."
ACT has just one MP, and he’s the top performer. In fact, the only problem with ACT MPs is, there aren’t enough of them. Luckily, we just announced 49 fresh, new candidates to change that, coming from small business, farming and all walks of real-life experience. You can check out our line-up of candidates on our website <[link removed]>. The media wants you think this is a simple 'blue vs red' election. These people are standing up to say otherwise.
The best thing you can do right now to help change the debate is forward this email to those who you think might support us and tell them why you’re Backing ACT. We’re aiming for 100,000 votes this election — can you help us get there?
Thank you for all your help and support,
ACT New Zealand - 27 Gillies Ave, Suite 2.5, Auckland 1021, New Zealand
