Why I’m running
I really admire the Swiss system of democracy they developed to try and prevent another civil war. New Conservative want to have binding citizens initiated referendums which is the corner stone of Swiss democracy. It is very practical and makes politicians work together to implement what the citizens want and need. We are making laws based on emotion that are in conflict with other laws. We need to give the public better and more truthful information. I believe the right to life is paramount.
My way of thinking and motivation tends to be intergenerational. Apart from two years overseas I have spent my whole life in NZ. Myself: forty year business in property and farming; volunteer in the community; sports coach, trust boards, church; a single long marriage, and restoration of 150 ha. of private native bush. Policy aims: government accountability; binding citizen initiated referendums; home ownership for everyone; restoring our unique environment, and protecting our most vulnerable people.
