Petition of David Cundy: Pay cuts for politicians and senior public servants

Published date: 1 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives pass legislation to reduce the remuneration of politicians, local body elected members, and senior public servants by at least 50 percent until our economy recovers from the COVID-19 virus.

Petition reason

New Zealanders and our economy will take a huge financial hit as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown and the cost of dealing with this virus. I feel it is only fair that politicians, local body elected members, and senior public servants should take a pay cut of 50 percent, at least until our economy recovers.
