Why I’m running
I am standing as a candidate as a result of ongoing excessive response with Covid-19. I consider the continued response and lockdowns to be grossly disproportionate to the threat mounted by the virus, and the refusal of the government to make adjustments based on fresh information. I could not just sit by and watch this going on. I would not be in my truth if I did not stand up and speak up for the people of New Zealand. Especially for my children and the future generations.
Degree in business studies in management and previously worked as a production planner/analyst in Auckland in '90s. I am a small business owner, with a successful dog grooming business and one-on-one teacher. I live on a small spray-free property with bees, chickens, avocado, nut and fruit trees, and vege garden. I sailed in my childhood and youth, I roadraced motorcycles in my 20s including castrol 6 hour, took up seido karate in my 40s, and am a second dan blackbelt. I regularly train and help new beginners.
