Why I'm standing

I love the region, the coastal area is such a fantastic drawcard, along with the bush and the mountains, I want to be able to champion it all. I also want to gain a deeper understanding of the rural sector and what their concerns are. Surfing for farmers is such a great connector. Let's do more.

My priorities
  1. Provide at least one positive change for a community. I want to focus on the positives.
  2. Encourage proactive decision making, rather than negative reactive, costly decisions.
  3. Be a conduit between the diverse communities in Southland. Help join rural, coastal and urban.
About me

I have a great understanding of political theory and why decisions are made under the various party banners. I am impartial and want to be able to offer the best, rational and proven scientific outcome for the community, on a given topic. I like to talk to everyone, the unemployed, the millionaire. Everyone is valuable, and I want to strengthen connections within our communities.
