New Plymouth National Party Newsletter

Campaign 2020: Campaigning is back in full swing. Our volunteers are about to start delivering Jonathan’s newest leaflet.

Another quick and easy way for you to help spread the word is to make sure you have ‘liked’ Jonathan’s Facebook page, and then share his posts. In the last few days there’s been a lot posted about this week’s New Plymouth visit by Judith Collins, Nicola Willis and Chris Bishop, and the announcements around education infrastructure. Jonathan has also given updates on his work in Energy & Resources and meetings with local people.

A video interview has been very well received and there’s been some
robust discussion in the comments. Visit:

Our Quiz Night at the Good Home was a great success with more than 80 people testing their knowledge on Tuesday night. A good time was had by all!
