National Party leader
Friday afternoon I was elected as the Leader of the New Zealand National Party. Nikki Kaye was elected as the Deputy Leader.
I’m incredibly humbled by this opportunity, and I want to assure you that I will give this job my all. I will work hard, with my incredible team, each and every day to make you proud of us and the National Party.
There is no Team Todd, there is no Team Nikki, or anyone else – there is only Team National Now, we must begin taking another step forward together, with confidence.
This is what you can expect from my leadership: First and foremost – I’m about what’s best for you and your family – not what’s wrong with the Government.
And I’m not interested in opposition for opposition’s sake. We’re all tired of that kind of politics.
I’m about ideas that get results.
My absolute focus as National Party Leader will be New Zealand’s economic recovery after the immense devastation from COVID-19.
We will save jobs, get the economy growing again and we will do so by leveraging our country’s great strengths: our people, our communities, our great natural resources, our values of hard work, tenacity, innovation and aspiration.
Only a National government can provide the leadership to do that.
That is why we must win the next election.
