Why I’m running
I am standing to increase ACT's share of the party vote in Tāmaki. I am keen to see ACT's values of personal freedom, smaller smarter government, and lower taxes strongly represented in Parliament and reflected in the drafting of legislation.
An active community member, I have chaired local ecological groups, and served as deputy chairman of the Orakei Local Board. I am a founding member of the Auckland Ratepayers' Alliance working to eliminate wasteful Council spending. A lawyer by profession, I am currently a housing specialist with a charitable organisation working to alleviate Auckland's homelessness. I run my own small business, have raised 3 children and have one granddaughter.
