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.
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.
