The biggest challenge facing the Northland electorate is proper recognition and respect from the government.
Northland is at the top half of the export wealth-creating electorates and down at the bottom of nearly everything else.
So much of Northland’s asset wealth is not subject to added value in Northland, but instead this value is added in other parts of the country or worse, offshore.
We are going to fix the Reserve Bank Act, so that it operates for our provincial regional economies, and not some other economy.
We will redirect the GST the government takes from international visitors to Northland, back to Northland.
