I stand with the many New Zealanders concerned about environmental issues, especially climate change, and the need to look after all our communities through the test of COVID-19 and the greater challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.

I am standing in the Bay of Plenty electorate to raise the profile of the Greens and increase the party vote.

It was my great privilege to live and work in the Bay of Plenty for eight years before family ties brought me to Wellington. I have strong connections to the wider Bay of Plenty and want to see our varied communities, the economy and environment thrive.

I believe the Greens represent vital values for Aotearoa New Zealand like protecting our precious natural environment, supporting those who need help, and upholding Te Tiriti o Waitangi, democracy, and human rights.

I'm asking people to give their Party Vote to the Greens to make sure these values remain at the heart of government.
