Why I’m running
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata. I believe the most important thing in the world is people, it is people, it is people. People should be treated with fairness and equality regardless of their physical stage of development, gender or disability. My proposed LIFE bill, once passed into law, will give unborn children the same human rights as all 'natural persons' under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 and the Human Rights Act 1993. I want to promote life!
All my adult life has been lived in Northland. In my younger days I worked in the primary industries, horticulture and forestry and in the later years the social sector and education. I am the director of a couple of small companies and served on several Trust Boards over the years. I'm committed to community transformation socially, economically, educationally and every other way. Northland is well placed for innovation, doing things differently and becoming a leader in regional regeneration.
