Standing for:
Mayor

Affiliation:
New Zealand Labour Party

Statement:
My principal place of residence is in the Wellington City Council area.

I'm running for Mayor because I love Wellington and I know we can make it even better. I'll be a champion for Wellington and will focus on looking forward and finding solutions, rather than looking back and finding fault.

My priorities are, firstly, getting Wellington's economy humming and creating jobs: I've grown my own business Kapai and worked in executive management. I'll use that experience to grow Wellington.
Second, getting Wellington's transport moving by freezing public transport fares and unblocking congestion at the Basin.
Third, ensuring Wellington builds homes that are warm, dry and affordable.
As Deputy Mayor I have the experience to work with Government to get things done.
I come from humble beginnings and am living proof that strong communities make a real difference in people's lives. I play a range of sports and support the arts. As a father to two young girls, Wellington is my future
