Kia tau te rangimārie o te Rangi e tū nei
o Papatūānuku e takoto nei
o te Taiao e awhi nei
ki runga i a tātou.
Tīhei mauri ora!
Tēnā koutou katoa.
My first campaign was the 1990 General Election. I was sixteen and in my last year at Wellington High School. I did a bit of volunteering for the Greens’ Wellington Central Candidate, Stephen Rainbow.
The centrepiece of his campaign was – get this – a plan to put light rail from the Railway Station out to the Airport.
