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.
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.
