Why I’m running
Tāmaki is my home. I have loved serving the constituents of Tāmaki for three terms of parliament and it remains an honour and privilege. Every day provides new opportunities to either assist with a local issue or to share local views in parliament. In the midst of the coronavirus response, I believe it is even more important to represent these voices. Thousands of Tāmaki locals have been in contact with me to share their concerns and I will keep listening, learning, and advocating on their behalf.
I am often asked, "Why politics?" The simple answer remains: I love people and ideas. While the many formal meetings are appreciated, it is the day-to-day interactions across the electorate that I thoroughly enjoy and which help me understand what locals want advocated for in parliament. I love living in and working tirelessly for this electorate. Locals know they can engage me directly and can regularly see me walking with my family, attending local events, or supporting local businesses.
