Why I’m running
I am running as a candidate because I have steadily watched as New Zealand, along with other countries, has sunk into a debt structured system. This system of short sighted gains, has benefit for a small minority only, but is not sustainable. I have decided to make a difference, by standing up so the majority voice can be heard.
I am a practical, logical thinking person who often works with people to find good solutions for problems. From a small town background, with a broad range of skills, I joined the NZ Fire service and spent 30 years as a Professional Firefighter in Christchurch. Honing my skills I developed a couple of successful small businesses I have worked many areas throughout the South Island and with the opportunity to meet a diverse range of people, they have heightened my awareness to the problems we face.
