Lincoln Platt has been selected as National’s candidate to contest Christchurch East at the for the 2020 General
Lincoln Platt is a licenced architectural designer and has run architectural companies for 20 years.
“I am humbled and excited to be chosen to contest Christchurch East for National and would like to thank the National
Party for their support and encouragement,” Mr Platt says.
“Christchurch benefited greatly from the previous National Government’s strong economic management and focus on results.
People here work hard and expect to see results from their tax dollars.
“Right now we are in unprecedented times. The 2020 election will be focused on which team has the expertise and the
history of delivering for New Zealanders and will pull New Zealand out of the hard times.
“Christchurch East needs strong National representation.
“Under Labour, the Greens and NZ First life was already getting harder. Household budgets are under pressure, rents are
up $65 a week and it’s causing many New Zealanders to stress.
“The Ardern-Peters-Green Government promised Christchurch a lot and has let Cantabrians down. Household budgets are
tight because the Government has wasted your taxes on failed experimental policies like KiwiBuild, Fees Free and the
Provincial Growth Fund.
“It’s clear Christchurch has been taken for granted by the Coalition. In the recent Infrastructure announcement,
Christchurch received pennies in comparison to other major centres.
“A National Government would do things differently. It would look after your hard earned taxes and spend them wisely and
in a way that ensures results, that matters now more than ever.
“National knows how to run the economy sensibly to ensure it is thriving and meeting the needs of Kiwis. Simon Bridges
leads a strong team and I’m looking forward to working with them.”
