Chlöe is your Member of Parliament for Auckland Central. It’s the place she calls home, the community she belongs to and the city – and Hauraki Gulf islands! – she’s proud to represent. Auckland Central is the reason Chlöe first came to politics, with the closure of beloved heritage music venue the King’s Arms serving as a catalyst for her 2016 run for Mayor of Auckland. After a short campaign on a shoestring budget, Chlöe came in third place with almost 30,000 Aucklanders giving her their vote. They voted for her because she was talking to them, about their city and what mattered to them.

Her next step was clear. Chlöe stood as a candidate for the party whose values matched hers and was elected as a Green Party MP in 2017. As the youngest MP in Aotearoa for over 40 years, Chlöe showed people that politicians can look a little different, sound a little different, and do things a little differently. Chlöe wants to show all New Zealanders that our institutions are just made up of people making decisions, and that these decisions are often constrained by systems designed to give power and privilege to the few.

Chlöe works tirelessly for bold, transformational action on the issues for which she is the Green Party spokesperson. In the area of Drug Law Reform, Chlöe has consistently advocated for an evidence-based, harm-reduction approach which treats drug use as a health issue. She also worked across Parliament to pass the Election Access Fund Bill - originally drafted by Mojo Mathers, former Green MP and first deaf Member of Parliament - that creates a fund for candidates with disabilities to run in elections without barriers.

In 2020, Chlöe instigated the Student Accommodation Inquiry to expose and fix the problems with the deeply under-regulated sector, demonstrating her commitment to working with students and their representatives for a fairer and better system.

As the MP for Auckland Central, Chlöe is focused on the electorate’s key concerns around:

  • Housing, particularly cost and security for renters, and most obviously the bald face of poverty in homelessness;
  • Transport, where the electorate is well overdue for a mobility revolution: walking, cycling, public transport and full blown accessibility;
  • The Environment, with the protection of Tīkapa Moana – the Hauraki Gulf, plus safe, clean and green shared spaces and improved air quality, particularly down Queen Street;
  • Small business, particularly the vibrant local arts and culture scene at the centre of the community.

Chlöe is a strong, unwavering advocate for Auckland Central on the city streets, in discussions with decision-makers, and in the halls of power in Wellington.

"Mechanisms of conventional, incremental political change have failed to rise to the challenges that the deeply entrenched and inextricable crises of climate change and social and economic inequality present. Citizens are smart enough to recognise the need for an alternative. It’s in this alternative where we can continually redraw the boundaries of the possible, because possibility in politics is only ever defined by the willingness of those in power.”
