National Party Leader Simon Bridges will this week begin a comprehensive tour of New Zealand aimed at hearing from Kiwis increasingly concerned by the Ardern-Peters Government and its unchecked assault on their back-pockets and their livelihoods.
“I’m proud to lead a strong, energised and united Caucus that is focused on holding the Government to account and coming up with positive plans for New Zealand’s future.
“Over the next two months I’ll be travelling around the country, going on a roadshow to connect with our communities and talk to as many New Zealanders from as many walks of life as possible.
“I want to hear from those communities, to introduce myself and to take the opportunity to outline my vision for New Zealand.
“National is a hard-working policy factory of 56 MPs and we’re determined to use our time in Opposition to develop positive, alternative policy to deliver for New Zealanders.
“We know New Zealanders won’t get ahead through high taxes and low growth policies that slow our economy down. So, we will develop the ideas that grow our economy and opportunities, building on the real progress New Zealand has made in recent years.
“We will undo the damage being done by the Ardern-Peters Coalition’s raid on our economy and on the back pockets of New Zealanders.
“Over time, I look forward to outlining those ambitious new policies on key issues that matter to New Zealanders like the economy, health, education, environment, and law and order – and for us to demonstrate we have listened and learned.
“Our country is filled to the brim with opportunities – we just need to make sure we get the settings right so New Zealanders can make the most of them. This roadshow is another step in our plan to do that,” Mr Bridges says.

Alexandra, Ashburton, Cambridge, Christchurch, Dunedin, Gisborne, Gore, Greymouth, Hamilton, Hastings, Hawera, Helensville, Hokitika, Invercargill, Johnsonville, Kaikohe, Kawerau, Kerikeri, Lower Hutt, Masterton, Matamata, Motueka, Napier, Nelson, New Plymouth, North Shore, Paeroa, Pakuranga, Palmerston North, Rotorua, Taumaranui, Taupo, Te Kauwhata, Timaru, Tokoroa, Waikanae, Waipukarau, Whanganui, Warkworth, Wellington, Whakatane, Whitianga.
