Why I'm standing

New Zealand is going in the wrong direction under Labour. The government has got its values wrong with excessive borrowing, taxing and spending, a lack of consequences for criminals and dividing New Zealanders by race. I'm standing with ACT because it's the only party offering New Zealand real change in these areas. ACT will get government spending under control, get tougher and smarter on crime and unite kiwis behind their common humanity.

My priorities
  1. Restore community law and order by holding criminals accountable and recognising rights of victims.
  2. Cut the cost of living by cutting wasteful Government spending, cutting tax and cutting red tape.
  3. Unite kiwis behind a Treaty which recognises their common humanity and stop dividing NZ by race.
