Why I’m running
Covid-19 has left our economy in a shambles. I strongly desire to see more work opportunities especially if Tiwai closes. I would like to investigate and discuss ways to create work in the South. I'm excited about our tax policy on income splitting and making taxpayers first $20,000 tax free. I strongly believe that families are vital to our nation, providing security for our children and the future of our country. I want a NZ where my children can grow up with the freedoms that Kiwis uphold.
My wife and I have two children and we call Southland home. Together we run a small building company. I am passionate about the outdoors, including hunting, rock climbing, boating and 4wding. I have worked alongside our refugee community, youth and children helping them to have hope. I believe that life is sacred, that we should protect our older citizens, some of whom have fought for democracy, and the unborn who have no voice. I believe all people are important, not a burden on our society.
