Why I’m running
New Zealand has seen a startling erosion of democratic rights, freedoms such as that of speech, property rights, especially in the last 3 years. While it was the firearms confiscation debacle and subsequent ongoing removal of firearms from the law-abiding public that galvanised my interest in politics, other issues such as gender ideology in schools, Zero Carbon and the ETS, mismanagement of our economy, widespread use of 1080 and more, have played their role.
My family moved to Auckland from Singapore over 30 years ago and I am a NZ citizen. I used to work for investment and merchant banks and in the telecommunications industry, before becoming an entrepreneur and now owning and working on a beef farm. I have been involved in grooming small companies for sale, for share market listing, and at the Board level for advice and strategy. Family is also very important to me – my husband and I live in Titirangi with my mother, my father being in care after a stroke.
