Why I’m running
Our choices for post-Covid-19 recovery are critical for climate change action, protecting nature and tackling inequality. The Greens have inspiring policy and genuinely caring politicians. I'm standing to increase the Green party vote in the Wairarapa, to deliver a future our grandchildren can thrive in. I understand the need to work with local people, other parties and make decisions based on evidence.
I have a breadth of life experience in teaching, IT, local government, practical conservation, participatory sport and community advocacy to offer. I believe that government investment is necessary to support healthy choices in housing, transport and education. I believe in collective support, individual creativity and a common view of a future free from racism, sexism and violence where our climate and natural environment are healthy.
