I am proud to call the New Plymouth electorate home. The family values instilled in me growing up on a dairy farm in Manaia have held me in good stead throughout my life. To me, strong families, caring communities and reward for hard work are at the centre of solving many of society’s challenges. I’m standing for National because it’s the only party with a plan to strengthen our economy so we can reduce the cost of living, lift incomes, build infrastructure, restore law and order and deliver better health and education.
I am a pragmatic, energetic person who focuses on solutions and getting things done. Integrity, community, and family mean everything to me. I live in New Plymouth with my wife Leasa and together we have three adult children whom we are very proud of.
I’ve been privileged to represent my communities in a range of roles, as a Director of Parininihi ki Waitotara, Fonterra and Port Taranaki, and as Chair of the Taranaki Regional Council. As the owner of local business operating in the energy sector, and with my farming background, I understand the challenges our energy and agriculture sectors are facing due to the policies of the current Labour Government. It’s this experience and knowledge I can now use to be your strong local voice as part of Chris Luxon’s National team.
Please get in touch with me on the details below, I am always keen to hear what matters most to you.
