Ngā mihi ki te Mana Whenua o Waitākere.
I’m a pākehā Aucklander born and bred. New Lynn is my home.
As a child, my parents would take us on weekend journeys West through the kauri clad Waitākere to Te Henga Bethell’s Beach.
West Auckland encompasses the full landscape of urban, industrial, rural, and exquisite wild places. With that comes many challenges including Kauri dieback, housing, transport, water pollution, poverty and climate change. I love the vibrant and diverse culture of the West and promise to be a strong voice for transformational political action for the good of people and planet.
Green campaigns are built by those with the courage to fight for a better world. Your support will make a real difference.
