Labour can­di­date

Our big­gest chal­lenges in­volve wa­ter and right now pro­tect­ing our rights – as lo­cals – to make de­ci­sions for Hawke’s Bay which im­pact on our lo­cal econ­omy and the en­vi­ron­ment. We must lead on wa­ter. We need safe, se­cure drink­ing wa­ter, wa­ter to feed our live­stock and grow crops, and clean rivers. We should not be giv­ing our wa­ter away free so it can be put in plas­tic bot­tles and shipped off­shore for profit.

I be­lieve by lead­ing on lo­cal is­sues we can cre­ate pos­i­tive change, em­power our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and make a real dif­fer­ence for more peo­ple liv­ing and rais­ing fam­i­lies here in this great place we call home.

I’m bring­ing fresh lead­er­ship, new en­ergy and pos­i­tive ac­tion with a down-to-earth ap­proach to putting peo­ple first. I’ve helped achieve re­sults with­out even be­ing in of­fice, in­clud­ing turn­ing off wa­ter bot­tling con­sents be­hind closed doors, more com­mu­nity polic­ing, free driv­ing lessons, get­ting $1m back from the public health costs of the wa­ter cri­sis, fight­ing for a promised school for Have­lock North to meet lo­cal needs and pro­tect­ing our right to be GM Free Hawke’s Bay. Imag­ine what I will do as Tuk­i­tuki’s new lo­cal MP, here work­ing for you. Labour is lo­cal, it’s what sets us apart – Let’s do this.
