Lower Taxes, Less Waste,
More Accountability

Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Donate to The Democracy Defence Fund

Democracy is under attack. Instead of protecting and encouraging local councillors following the will of the people, LGNZ (and council officials) are trying to exclude councillors following through on their democratic mandates. What’s worse, it seems to only apply to those councillors who campaign for fiscal restraint, less spending, and lower rates. Councillors who campaign and champion big spending projects like cycleways seem to get away with it.

All funds donated on this page will be used for our campaign to protect democracy and accountability.

If you would rather not donate via our secure online portal, you can also donate via internet banking directly into our account (details here) – please send us an email so we can confirm receipt and know what funds we have available.
