Why I’m running
This is my home. I strongly believe Taieri deserves a strong, local champion to advocate hard in Wellington for our interests. Whether it is our rural communities who are the backbone of our economy, who feed us and the world, or our strong urban centres which have our small businesses, our hospitals and our schools, I want to represent the very best of New Zealand right here in Taieri.
I'm a born and bred Dunedinite and very proud southern man. I went to John McGlashan College and then got my law degree from the University of Otago. Dunedin is my home, it's where I grew up and I feel very strongly about having a strong voice for our area in Parliament. That's why it is such a huge privilege to be running for Parliament this election as National's candidate for the new seat of Taieri.
