Press Release

Here' s a copy of the Press Release that went out today regarding the Campaign.....


LOCAL NDP CANDIDATE COMES OUT OF THE GATES STRONG

December 6th 2005 - Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe NDP Candidate David Hackett was first out of the gates last week in the race to determine who will represent the riding in the next Parliament of Canada. In addition to having his signs in place around the riding well ahead of his opponents, he was also the first NDP candidate to be confirmed by Elections Canada in the entire country and the first candidate from any party to be confirmed anywhere in Atlantic Canada.

“We wanted to come out strong and show the people of Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe that we’re serious about winning this riding,” said Hackett. “I’m very fortunate to have such a well-organised and exceptional team behind me. It really shows this is a party out to get results, and I think that will resonate with a lot of voters.”

Hackett has begun to canvass the riding and expects to be out on the doorsteps until the week before Christmas, when his team will break for the holidays and prepare for the big January push.

“It’s important to get visible early. Both of my opponents will be funneling a lot of money into this riding, so we have to counter that with good old-fashioned hard work. We have to be out talking to people and on the phones getting our message out.”

Hackett likes his chances in the contest, and is determined to keep the momentum going until E-Day.

“People are tired of broken promises from the Liberals and wrong ideas from the Conservatives. The NDP is about getting results and once voters are turned on to that, I believe you’ll see a big surge of support in the riding.”

Just wanted to say how happy we are that you are running. We are hoping hoping that people will get informed and realize it's way past time for a change and that Jack Layton & the NDPs is the change we need.
I am so scared that again people will vote Liberal just because they always have or because some of their relatives have in the past. How can people continue to vote for a party that has admittedly "lost" billions of our dollars & have have so many corrupt affiliations, not to mention the track record, false promises & lenghts they will go to for campanging. Nope their chance MUST be over- NEXT!
I will be talking to every single person I know to get them to at least get informed & make their own decision- which in my opinion will most definately be NDP. If, at least, we can just get more NDP seats in congress, I will be able to sleep better at night.
There are not just two choices here people & I am tired of hearing that some may not vote because they don't want to pick between the lesser of two evils. We MUST vote to finally make a change & stop complaing about a gov't we voted in - NDPs will be working for the common working person, not lining their own pockets & those of their friends. Let's just pray that people are finally beginning to wake up and are ready to fight for a change!
