Chlöe is the Co-Leader of the Green Party, and your local Member of Parliament for Auckland Central. She is also the Party’s spokesperson for Climate Change, Finance, Revenue, Mental Health, and Drug Law Reform. She is a member of the Finance and Expenditure Select Committee and co-founder and Chair of the Cross-Party Group on Mental Health and Addiction.

Chlöe entered Parliament as a Green Party List MP in 2017, and has been the MP for Auckland Central since 2020.

Chlöe works tirelessly for the wellbeing of people and the planet, with a focus on real system change. Her areas of interest include reducing climate change, tax justice, ending inequality in Aotearoa, improving conditions for those with mental health issues, reforming outdated drug laws, and empowering grassroots communities to engage in local decision-making and challenging the status quo.

Chlöe advocates for the diverse needs of her constituents across Auckland Central: the vibrant city centre that is home to over 40,000 residents; the bustling neighbourhoods of Ponsonby and the Bays; the passionate and environmentally-concerned communities of Waiheke Island and the stunning Aotea Great Barrier Island across Tīkapa Moana, the Hauraki Gulf.

Chlöe works 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. She wants you to know everything can change if everyone realises their collective power to make it happen.

"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.”
