Why I’m running
I believe New Zealand is no longer a clean green country to admire. Our beautiful land is drenched in toxins that harm all life including the insects in the soil. The Outdoors Party are committed to cleaning up Aotearoa and banning chemicals that no longer have a place here. We want to breath fresh air, drink clean water, eat food free from chemicals. Be able to swim in your local river without the pollution. That is a right after all. Sadly this is not the case. It is time for a change and now NZ.
About me
My community allows the manufacturing and supply of one of the most toxic chemicals around today. Sodium fluoroacetate has been in New Zealand since the 1950s. NZ use 90 percent of the world's supply. It is Inhumane, it has caused 60 years of death. There is no real data to say this is safe to human life. Exposure to 1080 in water can effect the unborn, fertility can cause malformation. They do not listen to petitions, referendums, I need to get into Parliment to be heard. Please vote for me.

Adrian Rurawhe
MP for Te Tai Hauāuru
My local priorities
Create employment opportunities and training opportunities leading to jobs for Māori, in Te Tai Hauāuru. Build the Māori economy, by creating opportunities in trade, business development, tourism and joint ventures. Remove all health inequities for Māori.
Why I’m running
After being chair of my Iwi for 10 years, I understood very clearly that to make policy changes that address the issues facing whānau, hapū, and iwi, you have to be part of the parliamentary process. I decided that I could best address these issues as a member of parliament.
About me
I have lived in Te Tai Hauāuru for most of my life. For more than 20 years before entering Parliament, I worked for kaupapa Māori organisations, as well as being chair of Te Runanga o Ngāti Apa. I have also been involved in political party activities for most of my adult life. I believe I have the understanding and empathy to effectively represent the issues and aspirations that are important to whānau, hapū and iwi.

My local priorities
Whānau are struggling just to pay their bills – we will raise incomes and focus on apprenticeships and jobs. Our rivers and lakes are polluted – we will restore waterways and uphold rangatira and kaitiaki rights. We are at huge risk from climate change – we will ban oil and gas and seabed mining, and invest in clean technology.
Why I’m running
Our people asked me to stand for Te Tai Hauāuru because our electorate needs a champion in parliament who will fight for our whānau, whenua and wai, and for our rights to be upheld – to carry on the work of whaea Tariana and those who have gone before.
About me
I grew up in the shadow of muru raupatu and the Pātea freezing works closure among whānau who refused to let that define them and created the hit 'Poi E'. Our whānau committed to an aggressive strategy of getting us educated, which ended up with me as an adult student at University of Tasmania and Stanford University. I live in a three-generation homestead, with my husband, children and mokopuna. We are grateful to live on tupuna land that was confiscated during muru raupatu.
