Why I'm standing

I want Whangārei to be a great place for my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A place with no homelessness, well-paid jobs and a vibrant community.

My priorities
  1. Affordable housing.
  2. Climate action.
  3. Support for small business.
About me

My family have lived in the same place for five generations. I have been involved in establishing community services and groups including free legal service, a homeless centre, a health centre, food rescue Northland, emergency housing, education support, film support and other supports for people in need.
