Why I’m running
I want to help our people, especially those most disadvantaged to have a better life for themselves and their children. Housing is completely unaffordable in Auckland. This enriches banks, speculators but crushes the poor. After rent there is little left to pay for food and living costs. Without good education and opportunity, the children of the disadvantaged are condemned to the same life. That is not what we want in NZ. Resources must be applied where they are needed.
