My local priorities
Economy. Create jobs and growth, get businesses and farms growing, reduce red tape, replace the RMA and cut GST for 12 months. Debt. Balance the books by 2023 without raising taxes or cutting health and education. Health. Mental health funding directed through one agency, Implement debit cards for long-term welfare beneficiaries.
Why I’m running
I am standing to raise ACT's party vote in Manurewa. I have seen a large section of NZ society affected by laws passed by our current government in the most undemocratic manner that I have ever witnessed. This has inspired me to become an ACT party list candidate, I want our democracy back.

My local priorities
Select and employ four leading local community representatives and build a management team to support me in parliament. Engage with the local business sector and the voluntary sector to create a Team Port Waikato consultation committee. Create a 3-year strategic plan, including: objectives, priorities, implementation plans and key performance indicators.
Why I’m running
My point of difference is that unlike the other candidates, who represent the interests of their political party, I am standing as an independent candidate and I am asking for the electorate vote to ensure genuine advocacy in parliament for Port Waikato residents. Except in rare circumstances, MPs with an affiliation to a political party are duty bound to follow political party voting rules. As a non-partisan candidate I will be free to always put the needs and interests of Port Waikato first.
About me
I am married with four children and I am the general manager of an award-winning company operating and managing major infrastructure in South Auckland and Northland. I also serve on the board of a local year 1-13 school. I hold a trade qualification and a bachelor degree which means I am as comfortable on the shop floor as I am at the boardroom table. I believe the first duty of government is to protect lives (not legislate to end them) and to protect property rights (not plunder them).

My local priorities
Repeal the Covid-19 Health Bill to prevent further lockdowns destroying businesses. Remove red-tape (proposed and current) that is pricing farmers out of the industry. Remove GST on non-processed foods, baby foods, feminine hygiene items, nappies, medicines and health supplements.
Why I’m running
The erosion of personal sovereignty and the increase of bureaucracy over time, and the overreach of the current government under the guise of Covid-19 (which is a framework for tyranny), was my call to action. I want to see real democracy return to the people; have a government that works in the best interest of Kiwis and our country, and it's resources. We are a very capable and clever people, who could easily be self sustaining and thriving given the opportunity and the right support.
About me
I'm best described as pragmatic, patient and solutions driven with an ability to think outside the square. These natural qualities I possess will be utilised in helping serve the constituents. I am not a career politician but an everyday Kiwi with a background in IT who wants all to prosper and I intend to implement solutions to issues: unaffordable houses, red-tape for farmers, struggling small businesses, unemployment, unreliable public transport, disillusioned youths, animal abuse.
