For the past ten years, I have been privileged to live in a beautiful part of Aotearoa – the North Shore.
I have a degree in Political Studies and take an active interest in politics. At the 2017 election, I door-knocked and leafletted for the Green Party, and I currently edit the Auckland Green Events Weekly Newsletter.
The North Shore electorate is home to well-informed people with the time and resources to take an interest in politics. They are aware of the challenges we face in 2020 from the ravages of climate change and the fall-out from COVID-19. I am keen to engage with local people about the issues that concern them, particularly around transport, economic policy and education. There are many young people here who have been involved in the School Strikes 4 Climate. I want to urge them to Party Vote Green, in what will be their first election.
I was on the Takapuna Grammar School’s PTA committee for seven years and have volunteered for NZ Sculpture on Shore, with funds going to support Women’s Refuge.
I have worked as an editor for government organisations, such as Ministry of Education, NZQA and Te Kura – the Correspondence School. I have also worked in London, for major educational and science publishers. Recently, I have been doing online learning design for tertiary institutions.
Please, think ahead and Party Vote Green. And, if you have some spare funds, a small donation would go a long way to help me campaign in the North Shore to boost our party vote.
