I'm standing for the Bay of Plenty electorate in a bid to maximise our Green vote and increase our Green presence in parliament. I am a local business owner, manufacturing a range of timber based lighting designs. I come to the Green Party through my love of the ocean and our local moana in particular. I have sailed and raced in our harbour and to our offshore islands, snorkelling and diving in awe of the scenery and life below the surface. I developed an urge to protect this incredible environment, but soon realised this could not be done without big changes to how humans operate as a whole. The Greens are the only party with the skill, values and insight to bring this change into being.

We plan a stronger than ever Party Vote campaign here in Tauranga and BoP this year with a candidate in both electorates and extensive electronic billboard campaign to boost our time-honoured tactics. Any donations to this cause will increase our coverage and be greatly appreciated.
