Based in Kumara, between Greymouth and Hokitika, Maureen Pugh was National’s candidate for the West Coast – Tasman electorate in the 2014 general election and is now the electorate MP.

Maureen was first elected to the Westland District Council in 1998, serving two terms before becoming the first woman elected as mayor on the West Coast. She served in that role for 9 years before standing down at the 2013 local body elections.

Maureen’s community service goes back over 40 years, and she is highly committed to helping the West Coast, Tasman, and all our regions to realise their full potential.

She is also an advocate for responsibly managing our environment, policies which grow our economy and create jobs, helping our kids get the best possible education, and ensuring that all New Zealanders can enjoy a world class health system.

Maureen and her husband John are parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and active farmers.

National is focused on supporting West Coast-Tasman and your livelihood
