My local priorities
Give GST component of all new builds directly to local government, to fund the infrastructure we need in Hutt South. Reform tax and welfare to introduce a universal basic income to save $8b and support families and community groups. Support other parties to ensure a smooth and speedy development of the Melling interchange.
Why I’m running
I am running for election because I have been severely disappointed in the ability of our established political parties to do anything about constantly rising rent and housing costs, about lowering our carbon emissions, and about our stubbornly low productivity. This has been going on for over thirty years now, and Labour and National have ignored expert advice on how to solve it time and time again. TOP has collected that expert advice into our policy, and that's what we're running on.
About me
I'm a scientist with experience doing research and development for high tech products and companies, in New Zealand and Europe. So I understand how to use evidence and research to make the best decisions possible with available information, and I understand when it's time to seek new information. I'm also passionate about communicating research as clearly as possible, so that the public can be active participants in decision making, not just passive receivers of decisions made on their behalf.

Helping families into owning their own homes and bringing ownership of NZ back to kiwis rather than overseas entities Ensuring freedoms and rights are protected and upheld, people are informed and empowered through education and media.

I believe 2020 has presented us with the opportunity to re-evaluate our priorities as a country, and has opened our eyes to the importance of health as a community. I would love to be part of implementing the solutions needed for our physical, spiritual, mental and environmental health. I will ensure families are empowered through education, supported through community initiatives and protected by addressing and correcting the countries broken bill of rights.

Ginny Andersen
List MP
My local priorities
Housing – ensure warm, dry homes continue to be built in the Hutt through the retrofit programme and state house build. Health – build on the investment in maternal and mental health services to ensure the best possible care is provided . Transport – invest in transport projects to get traffic off Petone Esplanade and improve public transport links.
Why I’m running
I had all the basics I needed as a kid – a warm home, the love of my family and the opportunity to learn. I became an MP because I believe everyone deserves the same. I'm proud to have fought for better housing in the Hutt, investment in maternity services, a new mental health unit, and the full-funding of Melling Link. I will continue to fight for people in the Hutt to ensure our homes are warm and dry, our health system is reliable, our infrastructure is modernised, and our people have jobs.
About me
I went to nine different schools. Mum and Dad taught in rural schools doing their country service. I saw how they were able to change someone's life for the better and that has always motivated me to do the same. Prior to becoming an MP, I was with the Police delivering action plans to reduce the harm associated with gangs, organised crime and methamphetamine. I saw first-hand the need for a criminal justice system that ensures less offending, less re-offending, and fewer victims of crime.

Why I’m running
I'm running for re-election so I can keep working hard and getting things done for the Hutt.

My focus as an MP is on helping people, and getting things done for the Hutt.

My local priorities
Support local businesses to retain staff once the wage subsidy finishes. Increase the availability of affordable housing across the electorate.
Why I’m running
Having lived and worked all over the globe I believe New Zealand is the best place in the world to live and raise a family. However, many of the traditional values this country was founded on are being rapidly eroded. I am standing for New Conservative in Hutt South to stop this and return balance to government. I am committed to a strong national identity, personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty and strong family values.
About me
I have had the honour of serving in the New Zealand Army for over 30 years, deploying on operations three times, once to East Timor and twice to Afghanistan. I have also owned and operated my own business in the building industry. These roles have required me to lead others and manage crises in a variety of challenging and diverse situations. I thrive when working to build bridges between people of different backgrounds to achieve specific outcomes.
