My local priorities
Clean water Initiatives helping farmers with on-farm water storage, irrigation and run-off reduction. Sustainable jobs that focus on the environment, conservation, waste management, and sustainable building projects. Climate action that helps us reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve low carbon industry, and public transport.
Why I’m running
As the candidate for the Rangitīkei, I see important issues that face our area. I support clean water initiatives, allowing us to better cope with severe droughts, intense floods, and the shared use of fresh water. I believe that our clean energy plan will help local people equip their homes and businesses with clean energy alternatives. I also see the urgency of sustainable jobs that offer people in our area meaningful work, leading fairer more empowered communities.
About me
I have been a small business owner for 14 years. Having moved to Marton 3 years ago, I have developed a real affinity for this area's natural beauty, and community kindness. My core values and diverse life experiences have prepared me well to be an effective Green Party representative. I promote health and wellbeing to people on a daily basis daily, and this speaks well to the Green's vision of healthy nature and community wellbeing.

Explore how to make passenger rail stops viable in Taumarunui, Marton and Waiouru by investigating domestic tourism opportunities. Explore how local government can be supported for infrastructure renewals. Investigate the healthy homes regulations heating requirements 'one size does not fit all'.
Why I’m running
In 2019 I planned to exit politics until others had other ideas. Once I analysed the environment spoke to whanau, looked at my mokopuna the decision was made. The later is my driving force, just as in local government we make inter-generational decisions, I will bring my experience and my maturity to the table of the next government.
About me
I have lived and worked across most of the electorate for almost 20 years at a business and political level. Self employed business consultant, elected councillor to Rangitikei District Council, Iwi leader and governor on Whanganui DHB and Community Trust. I have a track record of getting things done for my communities and have always supported and developed policies that are collaborative and build the capacity of communities. I bring a fresh face experience and maturity to the next Government.

My local priorities
Binding citizen initiated referenda. Reduce the regulations on the RMA. Repeal the new abortion laws.
Why I’m running
I believe that this is our nation and the government needs to hear the people's voice. Currently the government does not listen to the people. We as citizens pay our MPs to sit at parliament and it is an honor to do so but not a right. The people put our MPs there so they should listen to us the people. NZ is an amazing country and we want to keep it that way. We are one nation and we are one people. Kia kaha Aotearoa!
About me
I have lived all around the world in different nations. There are not many places as beautiful and as peaceful as New Zealand. I am a Husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother and a son. I believe that NZ was founded on Christian principals and values. NZ has become to liberal in their ways and in their thinking, we need to start bring us back to where we came from. God is good all the time....

Ian McKelvie
MP for Rangitīkei
My local priorities
To ensure we have an equitable tax system that does not disincentive our productive sector. To ensure the Palmerston North Ring Road gets finished to allow the region to reach its full potential as a freight hub. To ensure our farming and forestry sector grow mutually to the benefit of all in our region.
Why I’m running
I believe the Rangitīkei is a great place to live and work and I want to ensure it is a great place for future generations to live and work in. New Zealand is the lucky country because of our location and we need to ensure all New Zealanders are able to make the most of our advantages.
About me
I've lived and farmed in the Rangitīkei all my life and want to ensure our farming communities are well represented in parliament. My main interests are in sustainable agricultural systems ensuring we can continue to produce the best food in the world and I believe I have plenty of experience in agriculture, business and life to add to our team in Parliament.
