from the Taxpayers Union
Thanks to the generous support of tens of thousands of New Zealanders, later this week we’re taking to the road to fight the Government’s Three Waters proposals.
With the support of our grassroots network, we’ll be spreading the message directly within the local communities whose water assets Nanaia Mahuta is trying to remove from local control to put into ‘co-governed’ entities.
The roadshow will highlight just how unpopular these proposals are, put pressure on those few councils still holding out from resisting the Government, and pile the pressure onto Labour’s provincial MPs who are the key to overruling Mahuta’s undemocratic agenda.
While the media continue to run Mahuta’s lines about Three Waters our people-powered effort is exposing why Three Waters is zero gain, and holding her to account. Come along to show your support.
We’ve decked out a campervan with ‘Stop Three Waters’ gear and, starting this Friday, will be meeting local ratepayers, mayors, councillors, and community leaders in 39 local centres across the country.
Come and meet the team
Louis, Annabel, Josh, Levi, Connor, and the whole Taxpayers’ Union team over the next five weeks.
We’ll be holding old-fashioned soapbox events outside local councils and in town squares across the country. We are inviting local leaders to come and speak out against Nanaia Mahuta’s asset grab and sign our “Community Leaders’ Appeal to Protect Local Democracy and Stop Three Waters” addressed to the Prime Minister.
And regardless of Three Waters, we’re keen to meet Taxpayers’ Union supporters across the country.
