Botany electorate

Botany is currently represented by Jami-Lee Ross, who won safely with a margin of 12,839 when standing for the National Party in 2017.

My local priorities
Repeal the brutal abortion bill, firearm bans, and carbon taxes all passed by the last parliament. Lower taxes for all by making the first $20,000 earned tax free. Reform the justice system by supporting 3-stage sentencing.
Why I’m running
I believe that New Zealand needs a values-based conservative party and more MPs who will strengthen families and defend the unborn. I want to make sure New Zealand is a country where those who work hard are rewarded.
About me
I've lived in the community for most of my life and have strong conservative values. I will make sure freedom of speech is defended and all life is protected.

My local priorities
Civic participation: encourage Botany to vote and raise their voice. True representation: be as accessible to everyone in the electorate. Transport: upgrade and quicken East Auckland's connection to the city and airport.
Why I’m running
The New Zealand that supported me to thrive as a 1.5 generation migrant unfortunately no longer exists. When Labour last left office, schools were well funded, access to healthcare was equitable and effective, and public transport was encouraged. I want to bring real representation because Botany deserves an MP who's present and accessible. The voice of the next generation also needs to be heard in parliament as we make decisions for the future and uphold equality in a post-Covid world.
About me
I am a third-culture kid – meaning I grew up in a culture not the same of my parents, so I'm passionate about bringing a diversity of age, gender, ethnicity and background into governance boards. I sit on the board of Foundation North, APO and Youth Advisory Group of Philanthropy New Zealand which together with my legal background in employment and criminal law have deeply grounded me into the community and hope to create a better environment for NFP organisations to thrive.
