Why I’m running
It's time for real change. It's time we address the fundamental underlying issues in our society, instead of ignoring them or throwing money at the symptoms. Rising inequality, housing unaffordability, and our climate and environment crisis have been getting worse for 30 years; National or Labour, the outcomes are the same. TOP is the only party focused on the real drivers of these issues. TOP's policies will deliver systemic change, to make sure every Kiwi has the opportunity to thrive.
I grew up on the North Shore, and feel very lucky to live here. I was a lawyer for 7 years before becoming deputy leader of TOP, working as a civil litigator, and a Crown prosecutor. I am also studying a Master of Public Policy. My practical knowledge about how our justice system works, and the challenges facing so many people in our society, will be crucial to my role in parliament. I have seen the systemic issues, and now it's time to fix them.
