Why I’m running
For too long New Zealand has been sold out to offshore investors by career politicians, who care more about their careers than they do about their local communities. New Zealand is a unique slice of paradise that should be treated as such. Her people should be free to enjoy all she has to offer without the dictates of undemocratic commitments made by the current and previous governments. The mechanisms of the New Zealand political system need restructuring. I am committed to this cause.
Born and raised in Nelson, I have spent much of my adult life in the helping professions: ministry, counselling, coaching, consultancy and professional supervision. I pride myself in understanding the way people do things and why they do these things. This interpersonal dynamics approach is rarely factored into today's politics. I believe that if each person did so, we would all be living in a better world, so each day, regardless of what it is I am doing, I take on that challenge.
