Why I’m running
I am standing for election because this is a election that will determine how we all fair in the coming decade. Before Covid-19 we were starting to fix some of the problems in society and now it threatens to undo all of our hard work. One side wants to implement crippling austerity, while the other wants to spend. I believe we need to put New Zealand first and ensure that we achieve equitable results across all levels of society and we not leave people in need and New Zealand First will do that.
I have lived across three countries in my life. The UK, Australia and here in New Zealand. I had the privilege of being able to travel early in life where I witnessed many hardships, attitudes and cultures. Witnessing the treatment of and attitudes towards certain segments of society in those nations had a profound impact on me. My masters taught me to always research, listen to the other side, look at the consequences of policy and ensure that what you do, you do to benefit everyone in society.
