Why I'm standing

I am a returned expat Kiwi. My country has been turned into a lawless, corrupt, antisocial, moral-less society. Decent folks are disenfranchised, service workers intimidated, authority disrespected! The younger generation seem to have lost all resilience! Practical or science based skills are not being taught in schools. Business is being taxed out of existence to incentivise wage earners not to work hard or get ahead. Who was on watch while expats enhanced the Kiwi reputation.

My priorities
  1. Reunite disenfranchised communities. Reinstall globally recognised Kiwi pride. Re-call expats.
  2. Identify practically skilled folks to fix a broken system by hard work, innovation and disruption.
  3. Teach Kiwis to be resilient, install pride, and share inclusive communities. Volunteer, vote, and add value.
About me

My name is Mark Fogerty. I am factually a resilient super survivor by deed. I am a successfully published international author. I am an awarded public speaker and communications expert. I have practical experience in commercial farming, fishing, construction, agricultural. Legalisation experience gained in the professional service industry. I consider myself a verified ambassador to mother nature for my documented volunteer work as a pilot whale wrangler as an example. I lead when others fail.
