Why I’m running
I'm running for re-election because Maungakiekie is incredibly important to me. I've lived here for over 22 years, raised my family here and have been actively involved in the community over the many years. It is my home and it is personal. I have high aspirations for our community and want Maungakiekie to reach its full potential. That is why in my term I've fought for our residents and will continue to get things done and be Maungakiekie's voice every-day.
I'm determined, hard-working and, unbeknown to many, a closet amateur adrenaline junkie (politics isn't for the faint hearted!). I'm deeply connected to Maungakiekie and our community. I live and breathe local and bring this local service ethic to my role and actions every day. As the local MP accountable to my constituents, I always invite residents to comment and feedback on my results.
