Why I’m running
Our vision for a society that cares for all people, and for nature, is both realistic and possible. The government must protect people and planet. For too many years, greed and lack of vision have eroded these protections and people have lost hope. I want people to understand that under our MMP system, a party vote for the Greens is the way to shape the government to reflect our shared values. The more Green MPs we have in parliament, the more transformative our government will be.
I am a professional musician, who loves to spend time in nature, ride my bike, make pottery, grow food and spend time with my grand-children. I've lived in this area for over thirty years. I wish everyone had the choices I have. To enjoy their work, to live in a clean, warm, dry home, and spend time in nature. I am a candidate for the Greens because I believe that having Greens in government is the only way to ensure everyone can live a good life, and that nature and future generations thrive.
