Keeping our Assets

This week, the Government is set to push its unpopular asset sales legislation through a second reading at Parliament. 

Selling our best revenue-generating assets makes no economic sense.  Profits from these state owned companies currently fund our schools and hospitals.  When the assets go, our public services are at risk.

I sit on the select committee that heard public submissions on the partial asset sales proposal. We heard around a hundred submitters present in person – and only one wanted to defend the current proposal.

But all is not lost.  In a piece recently published in the Otago Daily Times, I explain how our assets can still be saved, and why.

Labour has set up a website to support the campaign to save our assets.

This Saturday Dunedin residents will join the protest against asset sales in a silent march organised by Grey Power.  Gather 11am at the Dental School for a walk to  the Octagon.  Bring signs.  Bring copies of the petition to keep our assets.
