New Conservative

Jump to a party

New Conservative is a conservative nationalist party that promotes what it describes as family values and Judeo-Christian principles. It was founded in 2011 as the Conservative Party but rebranded after the 2017 election. The party is economically right-wing and socially conservative and has campaigned on specific issues such as reducing tax and abortion. The party has never been in parliament, but gained 4% of the party vote in 2014 and had two candidates elected to Auckland’s Upper Harbour Local Board in 2013.

Not currently in parliamentCandidate for Waimakariri electorate
New Conservative
My local priorities
Make referenda binding so that the people get to choose. Empower local council rather than central government. Roading infrastructure including Woodend Bypass.
Why I’m running
I am genuinely concerned about the health of our democracy when successive governments ignore citizens initiated referenda and instead rush through legislation under urgency without due process or consultation.
About me
As a small business owner, a father and grandfather I believe that I bring both practical experience as well as a long term commitment to this nation. Currently the government is showing contempt for taxpayers as it spends millions on consultants, ignoring the effort and sweat that went into producing that tax money, that needs to stop.

Not currently in parliamentCandidate for Takanini electorate
New Conservative
My local priorities
Increase employment and employment opportunities to allow for strong and healthy families, and to facilitate one's dreams. Increase safety levels/reduction in crime with a priority towards neighbourhood policing teams and community safe groups. Lower taxes in order to allow Takanini residents to keep more of your own money.
Why I’m running
To defend New Zealand's values and sovereignty.
About me
I have spent years working in different sectors, the last 20 being mostly youth and community development, nearly all within the Takanini area, and am keenly aware of both opportunities and risks in our area, from Mission Heights to Takanini village to Sykes Rd. Being of Niuean, English, Tongan and Te Ātiawa/Ngāti Raukawa descent, my children being all of that and Chinese, the joining of cultures under the umbrella of our NZ system is just one of the reasons why I love our nation and traditional values.

My local priorities
Support the removal of the fuel and road-user charge increases that were implemented in the last 3 years, to support SMEs. Stop the use of 1080 in the Waitakere Ranges to keep our water supply and our communities poison-free. Improve street lighting, encourage community patrols and increase police patrols to keep commuters and walkers safe.
Why I’m running
New Zealand has seen a startling erosion of democratic rights, freedoms such as that of speech, property rights, especially in the last 3 years. While it was the firearms confiscation debacle and subsequent ongoing removal of firearms from the law-abiding public that galvanised my interest in politics, other issues such as gender ideology in schools, Zero Carbon and the ETS, mismanagement of our economy, widespread use of 1080 and more, have played their role.
About me
My family moved to Auckland from Singapore over 30 years ago and I am a NZ citizen. I used to work for investment and merchant banks and in the telecommunications industry, before becoming an entrepreneur and now owning and working on a beef farm. I have been involved in grooming small companies for sale, for share market listing, and at the Board level for advice and strategy. Family is also very important to me – my husband and I live in Titirangi with my mother, my father being in care after a stroke.

New Conservative
My local priorities
Do away with the Carbon Tax, emissions trading and the Kyoto Protocol as it will not improve environmental outcomes. Change the way government spends money so that it is not wasted and develop sound economic policies that will work. Focus on exports for all sectors of the economy. Develop mining, use coal and develop environmental solutions.
Why I’m running
I want to stop the slide and restore New Zealand back to the prosperous country it once was back in the 60's when there was virtually no unemployment, people grew up in stable families on one income and housing was affordable. There was no racial disharmony, no gangs, no drugs and no teenage suicides. We had a large kiwi owned manufacturing industry, farms were mostly family owned and our governments could successful carry out large infrastructure projects.
About me
I grew up on a family farm and began working as a casual musterer mostly in Otago and Northern Southland before spending time in a trotting stable to obtain my own Private Trainer's and Open Horseman's License. While training leased horses I had my own contract fencing business before going on to head shepherd, farm manager, leasing a farm and finally farm ownership in Australia. I also have experience in sales and middle management and hold a real estate agents licence.

My local priorities
Support families with tax breaks, housing, education options, local jobs and access to healthcare services. Increase economic productivity by reducing congestion, red tape, wasteful spending and empire-building. Strengthen democracy, ensuring policies and laws are simple, practical, fair and respect our democratic, human rights.
Why I’m running
New Conservative provides the values needed for our children to enjoy a united, peaceful and prosperous future. We'll strengthen families, reduce the causes of child abuse and provide education to help children achieve to the best of their abilities and to be employable. One-size-fits-all doesn't work! We'll give Kiwis confidence to invest and build a resilient economy – with less red tape. We'll deliver true democracy – freedom of speech, BCIR and no government discrimination for race, gender or religion.
About me
A Hibiscus Coaster for 33 years, I'm a wife, mother, business person and community volunteer. My work has covered the spectrum – the more formal side including teaching, finance and marketing. I've a BA and MBA from Auckland University, have been self-employed for 28 years and own a business with my husband. Volunteer work has included non-profit boards, project management for Te Araroa, environmental projects, as well as lobbying to protect our democracy and freedom of speech.

My local priorities
Support New Brighton business owners to bring cantabrians into New Brighton. This treasure is an under utilised asset. Oppose rates and tax increases and support Christchurch home owners and businesses who have been through so much already. Reward NGOs in the East who have set up grass roots support networks for the high demand of need, provide more supports.
Why I’m running
I believe in a country where the citizens have a say in how the country is run and that the government is there to serve it's people. I am concerned about the breakdown in families and the increasing mental health issues in our youth so I will ensure the government place priority for our young people by supporting and investing in family relationships. For our people to believe in themselves they need a hand up by equipping and empowering them. Actions not words or unkept promises.
About me
After teaching all levels in Christchurch primary schools for the past 15 years I founded a charitable trust in the heart of East Christchurch supporting women and families. Through my teaching and life experience I am able to empower women and families to value their contribution to society by equipping them with skills for successful parenting and future career opportunities. I also work alongside agencies supporting children who have experienced a history of trauma. Education is key for success.

Not currently in parliamentCandidate for Upper Harbour electorate
New Conservative
My local priorities
Support the over 12,000 small businesses in Upper Harbour while helping foster better workplace relations in business. Build a safer community and advocate for tougher sentencing with a focus on getting tough on first time offenders. Make quality housing affordable again to Kiwis with an introduction of stamp duty on overseas buyers.
Why I’m running
As a proud Kiwi I have seen this nation's sovereignty and democracy eroded and the rights of parents lost to the state. My experience as an employer, a mum, an immigrant and a businesswoman gives me a strong footing to represent Upper Harbour in parliament to make people important again. Patience, perseverance, hard work, good judgement, a desire to serve this country and resilience in the face of difficulty are hallmarks of my character that I believe will stand me in good stead as an MP.
About me
I am passionate about building a resilient economy, a safer community and protecting and promoting the family unit. With a Master's in entrepreneurship and a degree in economics and commerce, and over 17 years of business experience I have been a business mentor to provide emerging businesses support to generate new business ideas to achieve their potential. I want to bring change to workplace bullying in New Zealand and have been a spokesperson who arbitrates and lobbies the government.

My local priorities
Reform NZ's tax structure. The 1st $20k tax-free and introduce income splitting. On average, $2.5k-$5k less tax. Recognise that housing availability, affordability and quality all need to be addressed on multiple fronts. Value children and youth, recognising the vital role parents play in their decision making. Parents not the state.
Why I’m running
What we are seeing today is a radical leftist government rapidly shifting our country towards socialism. Venezuela was one of the richest countries in South America and a socialist government destroyed it within 10 years. I don't see anyone wanting to move to Venezuela. I believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional family values and a strong national identity. I will always advocate for our people, our sovereignty and our democracy.
About me
I served as a physical training instructor in the Royal NZ Air Force and I have travelled to more than 40 countries. Devoting 20 years to working in leadership and personal development, I found success as a regional and national award-winning sales and marketing consultant. I then went back to school to become a journalist working for three years in local television. The next natural progression were governance roles in which I founded a charitable trust dedicated to developing young leaders.

Why I’m running
Having lived and worked all over the globe I believe New Zealand is the best place in the world to live and raise a family. However, many of the traditional values this country was founded on are being rapidly eroded. I am standing for New Conservative in Hutt South to stop this and return balance to government. I am committed to a strong national identity, personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty and strong family values.
About me
I have had the honour of serving in the New Zealand Army for over 30 years, deploying on operations three times, once to East Timor and twice to Afghanistan. I have also owned and operated my own business in the building industry. These roles have required me to lead others and manage crises in a variety of challenging and diverse situations. I thrive when working to build bridges between people of different backgrounds to achieve specific outcomes.

My local priorities
Economy and jobs: the pandemic's impact is yet to be truly felt – all of our citizens need meaningful, secure employment. Families: drugs/health/housing/crime affect whether our families are thriving or surviving. I want to see them thrive. Health: a cancer survivor myself, I've seen the problems in our health sector, we need to better serve New Zealanders.
Why I’m running
I am curious about the world: how it operates, the people in it; about fairness, freedom and democracy. I was asked by respected local leaders if I would stand up for Napier and have sincerely considered those requests. The things that concerned me in our community had already motivated me as an author, but ultimately it is government that writes the rules that control our every day lives. I'd like to be a part of that for the betterment of all New Zealanders and creating meaningful change.
About me
An electorate MP is required to be a generalist, adaptable to any role government gives you. I have professional involvement in trucking and logistics, waste and recycling, farming, tourism and business. I'm an employer and well used to running an office. For 30 years as a volunteer to the Napier community my interest is genuine and those activities cover the arts; education, sports, health as well as supporting our disabled community. I am ready and willing to continue being of service to Napier.

My local priorities
Strengthen the family unit because a strong family unit ensures favourable outcomes for our children. Advocate for employment opportunities for our people. When people have jobs it increases their sense of self-worth. Open up possibilities for people to own their homes. People want a home that is theirs.
Why I’m running
I recognised the erosion of our democracy, loss of freedom of speech and the implementation of divisive race-based policies on the part of the current government. I believe that the government is there to serve the people and not the other way round. Our country faces many high level issues that must be addressed, such as housing shortages, lack of employment and unnecessary RMA restrictions that hinder progress. My aim is to help people become self-sufficient and less government dependent.
About me
I was recruited in South Africa to come to New Zealand in the mid-1990s when there was a shortage of qualified specialist teachers in New Zealand. I have worked at different levels in education and also l worked in education across seven countries, in national curricula as well as in the International Baccalaureate curricula. This was a very enriching experience because it enabled me to interact with a wide range of cultures and learn about different belief systems, and worldviews.

Why I’m running
I'm standing as the Taranaki King Country candidate for New Conservative as I've felt for some time now that the people in my electorate don't have adequate representation and I'd like to see that change. I believe the role of government is to listen to the people and not rule over them, to hear what the people are saying and implement policies that are beneficial for all New Zealanders. I'd like to see a return to true democratic process and the protection of the freedom of speech.
About me
I've lived and worked in the Taranaki King Country electorate for the last 17 years. I am the owner/ operator of two small businesses. Stylequeen Bridal and Formal Wear and Lee Smith-Professional makeup artist. I've owned them for 20 and 10 years respectively. I'm a lover of all things girly! I'm a wife, a mother of six, a nana and a passionate Suicide Prevention advocate. I love to help people who have not had the easiest of lives and I'd love to see a NZ which sees prevention as better than cure.

Being a voice for conservative Christian Pasifika. This group who make up the majority in Mangere don't have one. Improving the quality of life for the community in Mangere. This is our wealth and social health. Ending the diaspora of Pasifika from one community to another due to lack of home ownership.
Why I’m running
I believe in serving my community, the Samoan word is 'tautua'. I look around my Mangere community and I can see that there are real problems that have existed for quite some time requiring real solutions and in my opinion these problems have only been exasperated over the years. This is an abject failure on the part of Government and community leadership which points the finger directly to the office of parliamentary representatives. I believe we can improve the quality of life of my community.
About me
I have been raised in a Samoan family that understands the importance of serving the people or 'tautua' regardless of where you live. Although I have a university degree in politics and have served in five campaigns (four in the USA as a Republican and one in NZ), I have always thought I would be serving my God and the people of my community through ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ as an evangelist like my mom So'oalo founder of the Emanuelu Ministry or my grandparents, Pastors of Metotisi Samoa.

Address the environmental issues: e.g. phase out the use of 1080 and stop the theft of our water by other countries.
Why I’m running
I love New Zealand and the freedoms, lifestyle and culture we have enjoyed as New Zealanders. I have only recently become involved in politics due to the destruction of our nation by successive parties in power – but especially this unelected current government. As a counsellor working in social services I have seen the impact of poor legislation, with the barbaric abortion up to birth legislation and the proposed euthanasia laws devaluing Kiwis its time to stand up and make people important again!
About me
I grew up in small town New Zealand. I had a nursing background I retrained as a counsellor 11 years ago. I've worked in social services with youth and their families – grief and loss and suicide etc. I have worked along side other professional organisations This has afforded me an inside view of some of the gaping holes in our mental health system and many of the challenges our families are facing. I believe New Conservative have excellent policies to Support and strengthen our families for a healthy NZ.

My local priorities
A hospital in the electorate for a growing and ageing suburban population. A growing population needs more primary and secondary schools. Electrification and commuter rail service and a four lane highway to Levin. Less cars in Wellington, CBD needs better alternatives.
Why I’m running
Successive governments have underestimated the intelligence of the New Zealand voter and shown contempt for them by ignoring their voice on referenda. They have minimised core family structures, wasted tax-payer dollars on frivolous projects and harmful social programs, doing nothing to improve the plight of low income families. It is for these reasons that I have decided to stand for New Conservative in the Ōtaki electorate.
About me
Eliminating waste has been my focus for 20 years implementing systems in factories. Successive career politicians have created waste that they no longer see, a new set of eyes is now needed; that is what I offer. I have seen and lived apartheid in action, NZ can live without it. I have seen the government gravy train in motion, NZ will be richer without it. I have seen the breakdown of the family structure, NZ will be stronger and punch still higher with stronger families. It is time for change.

Make the first $20,000 tax free so that people can take home more, and increase the tax brackets. Introduce income splitting for families, which lowers a couple's tax burden. Reduce red tape and unnecessary regulations to help small businesses be more profitable.
Why I’m running
I'm concerned at the direction New Zealand is being taken down. The social engineering of teaching young children gender ideology is quite frankly child abuse, there are only two genders. We are one people and laws favouring one race over another are unjust and divisive. Increasing regulations placed on businesses and on our farming community culminating in the Zero Carbon Act, are all acts of social and economic sabotage.

Actively push for new markets where we can sell value added manufactured, New Zealand grown and made products. Redirect our ETS and carbon tax from going overseas and disappearing to the UN, and use it for primary development. Research and use our own energy products whilst developing new ones so that we remain competitive economically.
Why I’m running
I have a strong background in finance. I believe in family and community. I don't believe in standing around criticizing the government without putting my hand up. I believe in democracy and the need for change. Our country punches above it's weight against the world in sports, academic, business and our lifestyle. However, in the last 5 years I have seen apathy growing within us. I want to bring us back to that success. I also have an economic plan that can pay back the Covid-19 debt.
About me
I have been involved in politics, not as a politician but as an active member of my community to support people where it is needed in local government. I have also been involved in central government politics by supporting candidates and politicians in past elections. In the last four years I have been elected to our local community board and currently chair the board. I am always looking for ways to improve our community, our nation and the laws our government makes. I actively support democracy.

Instil the value of life into law. Make the people the arbiters of law through legally binding referenda. Lower taxes throughout the entire economy and more efficient government spending.
Why I’m running
I have seen the rule of successive governments fail to listen to the people of our nation. I want to change the way parliament functions to make it more accountable to the people. We have the best resources in the world, and, I want to see those used by the people of our fine country.
About me
Before standing as a candidate, I underwent two heart surgeries. I have had to stop and really think about my convictions/beliefs and how to best apply them in the real world. I saw the degradation of the liberties afforded us by the 1688 Bill of Rights and decided that I had had enough. I am a Christian believer, and as such, I am strongly apposed to any law that devalues life or debases the individual person.

My local priorities
Student support: wrap around services to prevent education gaps, personal development, employment opportunities. Community safety: supporting community volunteers, complete family support and good policing. Built environment of healthy homes with great recreational opportunities.
Why I’m running
I really admire the Swiss system of democracy they developed to try and prevent another civil war. New Conservative want to have binding citizens initiated referendums which is the corner stone of Swiss democracy. It is very practical and makes politicians work together to implement what the citizens want and need. We are making laws based on emotion that are in conflict with other laws. We need to give the public better and more truthful information. I believe the right to life is paramount.
About me
My way of thinking and motivation tends to be intergenerational. Apart from two years overseas I have spent my whole life in NZ. Myself: forty year business in property and farming; volunteer in the community; sports coach, trust boards, church; a single long marriage, and restoration of 150 ha. of private native bush. Policy aims: government accountability; binding citizen initiated referendums; home ownership for everyone; restoring our unique environment, and protecting our most vulnerable people.

Poll the electorate to understand their concerns. Work with New Conservative and coalition partners to establish binding referenda. Establish an independent local conservative media platform to counter the leftist narrative.
Why I’m running
I am deeply concerned that the news media are failing to properly inform the New Zealand people on several very important issues, to the degree that our freedom and democracy are threatened. From my studies of recent American politics and the history of revolutions, I am dismayed to see the USA being overcome by a Marxist revolution. I am determined to speak out to prevent the same from happening here in New Zealand.
About me
I am a family man and a Christian, with a strong understanding of the purpose of my life and the lives of others. I have an inquisitive mind that is open to questioning the official narrative when there is clear evidence of corruption and hidden agendas. I believe in free speech and the liberty that comes for all citizens when people seek the truth and speak out.

Increase support of families in the lowest income brackets; no child in NZ should be hungry and cold. Affordable housing: Auckland spread has left locals with reduced options. Roading Infrastructure: upgrade of several one lane bridges to two lane and the Katikati bypass.
Why I’m running
New Zealand is following a predictable route around Tytler's cycle of nations from chaos through courage, liberty, abundance, complacency, apathy, dependence and back into chaos. The Overton window has shifted left so that: one, the handouts of socialism seem sensible while few consider "who will pay?", and two, the sanctity of life is eroded. Watching, I thought it was time to do something, as Edmund Burke said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing".
About me
Growing up in South Africa, I witnessed the damaging influence of discrimination on society. I set up a soup kitchen for street kids, and saw that arguably the worst corollary of apartheid was the destruction wrought on families, as fathers went to work in the mines, and mothers in white suburbs, resulting in children raising themselves. Unfortunately New Zealand is heading down a similar path with over-worked, single parent families becoming a norm. NC policies encourage strong families.

Housing. This is the main driver of poverty in NZ now. We will stop speculators buying houses. Education, and investment in youth and resources to stop especially in poorer areas. Focus on health issues, dental, mental health etc.
Why I’m running
I want to help our people, especially those most disadvantaged to have a better life for themselves and their children. Housing is completely unaffordable in Auckland. This enriches banks, speculators but crushes the poor. After rent there is little left to pay for food and living costs. Without good education and opportunity, the children of the disadvantaged are condemned to the same life. That is not what we want in NZ. Resources must be applied where they are needed.

Take action to get infrastructure decisions made so Nelsonians are enjoying their city and not wasting time in cars.
Why I’m running
We are losing our freedoms in New Zealand. Generations went before us and fought for our country and our freedoms and they are being slowly but surely eroded. The current government is actually fast-tracking this. I want to be elected because our democracy is in trouble and I want to be part of the solution. Citizens initiated referendums have been ignored and the state is now taking the right to parent out of our hands. I want a free and fair New Zealand.
About me
I'm a proud New Zealander and 'mainlander'. I grew up in Canterbury but came to Nelson for holidays and when given the opportunity to move to Nelson after 10 years overseas and in Auckland, with 3 children, I grabbed it! (15 years ago.) I have owned a business, worked in many industries and believe in governance and process. I am passionate about fairness and giving people their chance to speak. I will work tirelessly to give New Zealand a fully functioning democracy and common sense values.

Implement binding referenda so Kiwis can hold their government to account and have a say in politics. Remove tax on tax! Kiwis shouldn't pay GST on top of fuel tax or GST on top of council rates. Reduce tax! Strengthen families by introducing income splitting. This will allow you to spend more of your own money.
Why I’m running
New Zealand is a terrific country and I love living and working here. NZ is one of the easiest places in the world to start a business – but sadly one of the hardest places to stay in business. I want to see a country where we can easily grow our businesses with less red tape and unnecessary obstructions. By supporting small businesses, we can reduce our unemployment levels and reduce poverty. Majority of Kiwis want to own their own home! We need to assist them in realizing this dream.
About me
I'm a businessman, a licensed builder, property developer, investor and family man. As a teenager I worked with youth at risk and helped run holiday camps for children in Canterbury for 15 years. I have a passion for seeing small businesses succeed and for people to excel in their field of expertise. I love to see people realize their dreams of home ownership and have assisted/advised many young people in this. I love the outdoors, hunting and fishing and the New Zealand High Country.

Why I’m running
Covid-19 has left our economy in a shambles. I strongly desire to see more work opportunities especially if Tiwai closes. I would like to investigate and discuss ways to create work in the South. I'm excited about our tax policy on income splitting and making taxpayers first $20,000 tax free. I strongly believe that families are vital to our nation, providing security for our children and the future of our country. I want a NZ where my children can grow up with the freedoms that Kiwis uphold.
About me
My wife and I have two children and we call Southland home. Together we run a small building company. I am passionate about the outdoors, including hunting, rock climbing, boating and 4wding. I have worked alongside our refugee community, youth and children helping them to have hope. I believe that life is sacred, that we should protect our older citizens, some of whom have fought for democracy, and the unborn who have no voice. I believe all people are important, not a burden on our society.

Repeal anti-family policies (start with abortion and anti-smacking laws) to strengthen families and ensure life is valued. Reform justice, welfare and education systems to protect the public, value victims and equip youth for work instead of crime. Implement income splitting and $20k tax free threshold to reduce burden (single income family on $40k will pay no tax).
Why I’m running
I believe a healthy society is built on strong families, personal responsibility, the pursuit of truth and justice, and a moral code which values and respects every individual. Successive governments have undermined these foundations and I want to change this. Government's primary duty is to protect and defend the most vulnerable in society. I want to: empower parents (repeal the anti-smacking law); defend the unborn (repeal the new abortion law); uphold freedom of speech; encourage success.
About me
I have one wife and two daughters who I want to grow up in a safe, prosperous country where everyone is valued and encouraged to succeed. Where government is accountable to the people instead of ruling over us. Where we can speak the truth without fear of being vilified, deplatformed, persecuted or prosecuted. As an engineer I am driven to solve problems and fix anything that is broken. As a Christian, my heart is for helping people. I despise red tape, and am willing to fight for what is right.

Improve the funding and structure of the regional hospital to cope with the region's expansion and provide better service.
Why I’m running
Concern over the government's lack of consultation and process in making laws in recent years has motivated me to be more active. How fast the gun laws were enacted, without considerations from collectors and sports shooters was alarming. Legalising abortions up to birth for any reason, when the government should have been focusing on the coronavirus response was the final trigger. Since then there has been many more laws past to take away our freedoms. I strongly support binding referenda.
About me
I have carried out my schooling in HB, my business and family are in HB, I am committed to HB, I want to see our resources and infrastructure developed in common sense ways, that gives more rights to individuals and businesses. We need government to enable our, growers, farmers and businesses to develop and do well for the overall economic benefit to our region and country.

Policies change to 'hand ups' not 'hand outs' to avoid long-term pitfalls and achieve long-term goals.

Strategies for home ownership for NZers.
Why I’m running

I and my husband have three adult children, own a family business, and I am involved in property investment management. Secretarial/business administration training led to many employment opportunities, including working for TVNZ. Having worked for 14 years with young people, I know the importance of youth developing resilience, hope, and a vision to build their own futures. Business people work very hard these day, have lots of courage, innovation we need to reduce the red tape to enable growth.

If a plan is not well thought out, whether it be education, law and order, health, infrastructure, etc., that plan cannot succeed, regardless of money or good intentions.

Work to strengthen families to enable them to better provide their children with the best opportunities and outcomes. Make Citizens Initiated Referendums binding to allow NZers to engage in political decision making between elections. Uphold freedom of speech; so all can deliver, hear and engage in robust debate, to make properly informed decisions.
Why I’m running
New Zealand has been where I have grown up, made a family and become all that makes me me. I am greatly blessed to have done so in this place. Over the past few years I have become concerned about some of the directions we seem to be moving in as a nation; concerned enough to want to do something to preserve the things I see us losing that were of such value to me when I was younger. The significance of family and the freedoms I enjoyed are being eroded. I want them to be important again.
About me
Born in England, I came to NZ when I was 4 and have lived here ever since. I attended school and university in Christchurch, I was also married and have had all my children here too. I have at various times been self employed, a business owner and worked for 15 years as a teacher. I also manage several companies. I will bring my practical experience and knowledge to my role if elected and use these skills to do my best to support New Conservative, and implement their policies where possible.

My local priorities
Pass a binding referendum bill for moral issues to allow greater control on what parliament imposes on New Zealand. Rezone enough land for affordable housing, until the median house price is a maximum of three times the median income. Repeal the anti-smacking law, with a binding referendum required to implement the repeal, to reduce family breakdown.
Why I’m running
Hi there! I believe that binding referendums on conscience issues are the best model to uphold the rule of law in New Zealand. I want to return to sound economic knowledge, common-sense and evidence-based decision making in our urban development to solve our housing affordability problem and incentivize Kiwisaver money to invest in infrastructure throughout the country. I want to ensure that the government does not interfere in families through the repeal of the 2007 anti-smacking legislation.
About me
I have advocated over the last 10 years for solutions to our housing affordability through submissions, emails and the collaborative creation of a website. I suggest evidence-based decision making, through the ethical use of technology, counters arguments that promote urban intensification without understanding the urban economics. I also believe in reading widely is critical to understanding the moral issues of euthanasia, drug use and abortion.
