Kaipara ki Mahurangi electorate

Kaipara ki Mahurangi (formerly Helensville) is currently represented by National's Chris Penk, who won safely with a margin of 14,608. In 2017, National won the largest share of Helensville's party votes – 56% to Labour's 26%. Boundary changes this year have extended the electorate into Northland, Whangaparāoa and Upper Harbour. It no longer includes the Waitakere Ranges.

My local priorities
Stop the proposed Dome Valley landfill as it poses huge risk to people and environment of Kaipara ki Mahurangi. Restore passenger rail services to Huapai and Helensville to help ease congestion and cut emissions. Increase funding for mental health support, with emphasis on farmers and youth as they are disproportionately affected.
Why I’m running
I'm standing for Social Credit because I believe its innovative, forward thinking economic and environmental policies will provide the best future for Kiwis today and generations to come. I am strongly opposed to the Chinese Government owned Waste Management Ltd proposal to build a potentially toxic landfill in Dome Valley. I strongly support using the Reserve Bank to fund the much needed infrastructure upgrades and development in the electorate such as passenger rail to Huapai and Helensville.
About me
I decided to become involved in politics when I learnt about my now inspiration, former Social Credit Leader and MP, Bruce Beetham. It is important to me that youth voices are heard as decisions made by governments have far-reaching consequences into the future. I stand for constructive politics and independent, honest criticism of government and opposition.

Economy: create jobs, get business and farms growing. Cut red tape, replace RMA, cut GST. Control the debt: stop out-of-control spending; Balance books by 2023 w/o raising taxes or cutting health and education. Invest in mental health and welfare reform.
Why I’m running
I am standing to raise ACT's Party Vote in Kaipara ki Mahurangi. I'm a long-time party member and activist who lives and breathes the party's values of personal freedom. My experience in business, farming, Boards of Trustees and local councils has taught me that the Government that governs least governs best. My motivation for running is to gain more party votes for ACT so that there are more members of parliament representing these values.
About me
I'm an award-winning businesswoman, with over 30 years experience in small business from horticulture, beef farming, furniture moving, concrete tank manufacturing, flooring applications, transport brokering, and NPO administration. I'm a mother of two and a successful politician in my own right, having been elected three times to Auckland Council's Rodney Local Board, including serving my second term as chair and my current term as deputy.

Why I’m running
I am running as a candidate in Kaipara ki Mahurangi in order to promote the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand and its principles of ecological wisdom, social responsibility, appropriate decision-making, and non-violence. I believe that a strong Green presence in a coalition Government is the best way of ensuring that we have a healthy environment, sustainable economy, and equitable society for future generations to enjoy.

My local priorities
Maintain the momentum of the rebuild/economy recovery post-Covid-19. Jobs. Getting our fair share of infrastructure spend. Continue support to reduce household expenses for those in need e.g. winter energy payment, reduce doctors fees. Access to healthcare.
Why I’m running
It's a great privilege to get the chance to represent people on the issues that matter to them; identifying what should change and how to make things better. Standing up for the more vulnerable in our community, giving people a voice and bringing their issues to the attention of decision makers is something I am very proud of. I believe in fairness, equal opportunities and giving our kids the best possible start in life so they can have access to good jobs, decent working conditions, fair wages.
About me
Living locally in the Kaipara ki Mahurangi electorate, I am very aware of the issues that matter to our community. When people talk to me about congestion on our roads or how the growth of our towns is adding to the pressures on our schools, health care facilities, and environment, I understand. I see it and experience it too. I have worked hard for my entire life, and am now using my professional experience, knowledge, and the skills I have developed over the years, to make a real difference.

Chris Penk
MP for Helensville
My local priorities
Advocate for better transport infrastructure (e.g. roads, passenger rail) in our area. Seek more classrooms for existing schools and a new school in Auckland's northwest. Ensure that the needs of the rural north are not forgotten by decision makers in Wellington and Auckland Council.
Why I’m running
I want to serve the community as a local MP who continues to advocate strongly for better results in our area. Issues facing Auckland's rural north include poor transport infrastructure (for example, the rough rural roads and a lack of passenger rail) and other services needed in the area. I want to ensure that central and local government decision makers respond so that the good people of Kaipara ki Mahurangi have an even better place to live, work and play.
About me
I've lived most of my life in West Auckland, currently right at the boundary of the Helensville electorate that I represent. I'm a husband, father, dog owner, Warriors fan and cricket nerd. I believe strongly in values such as personal responsibility and equality of opportunity, consistent with the principles of the National Party.
