Keep Our Assets Canterbury (KOA) will announce it is standing John Minto in a campaign for the Christchurch mayoralty at a media conference to be held
Today Tuesday 6th August, 2pm at WEA (Room 3), 59 Gloucester Street
We have decided to stand John because Christchurch faces unprecedented challenges:
- Global warming from greenhouse gas emissions has created a climate catastrophe which threatens us all.
- Our precious drinking water is tainted with contaminants and threatened by nitrates.
- Deep divisions across the city mean many people struggle on poverty incomes without dignity or self-respect. Housing conditions and social impacts for many are as bad as the 1930s depression.
Our current path does not make sense – it’s not working for us.
The seven policies we will bring to the campaign will show the way to a future which makes sense for all of us.
These policies are outlined below and will be explained in more detail at the media conference.
John will not be available for interview before the 2pm press conference.
