Carlos Cheung is a company director currently working in property management and has an extensive background in biological and biomedical science.
“I’m aspirational for the people of Mt Roskill and advocating for policies that help them get ahead. That means stopping Labour’s wasteful spending and investing in the things that matter, like National’s FamilyBoost policy which provides up to $75 a week in tax rebates to help families pay for childcare. We need to get serious about addressing inflation, and Kiwis have seen no plan from Labour to do that.”
“National believes in backing hardworking people to succeed and creating safer communities where everyone can thrive. These values are key to people in Mt Roskill and will be priorities for me if I earn the opportunity to represent them as an MP in Chris Luxon’s National team.”
Born in Hong Kong, Carlos moved to New Zealand as a teenager and completed his schooling at Auckland Grammar School. He then gained a Bachelor of Science, Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Science, Master of Biological Science and PhD in Biological Science from the University of Auckland. His research work focused on diabetes and cardiac disease.
Carlos is a member of the Institute of Directors and volunteers with the ARK Collective, which is a Roskill-based group dedicated to charity and emergency management work in the area.
Carlos and his wife Fiona, who serves as deputy chair on the Puketapapa Local Board, live in Mt Roskill. He has lived in Mt Roskill for more than 15 years.
