“People who are in their homes or any community around New Zealand today are focussed on four issues,” he said.
“Does the family have the jobs they need to support themselves?
“Do they feel safe in their community?
“Are their children getting a decent education?
“Is the health system going to perform for them?
“People worry about the issues that actually matter to them.
And all four are going in the right direction. Record job growth, falling crime, more kids achieving at least NCEA Level 2 and the health system performing way better than seven years ago.
