Candidate statement

Ko Raukawa te moana

My first priority is returning land, water, and assets to Māori. Secondly, increasing our supply of social housing, operated together with mana whenua. Thirdly, growing a liveable, sustainable, and compact city - with green spaces and denser, more affordable housing. Finally, delivering on fast, efficient public transport and indigenising our public spaces.

If elected, I'll be a tireless advocate for all Māori living in Pōneke, and work hard towards honouring Te Tiriti, solving the climate crisis, and housing our whānau.

As the progressive choice for the new Māori ward, I'll fight every day for tino rangatiratanga. Our tūpuna are watching us, and together we can transform Wellington into the indigenous capital of the world.


Ko taku aronga tuatahi ko te whakahokitanga o te whenua, o te wai me ngā rawa hoki ki te iwi Mäori. Tuarua, ko te whakapiki i te nui o ngā wharenoho ahupori mā te mahi tahi ki te mana whenua. Tuatoru, ko te hanga i tētahi tāone hāneanea, toitū, pūhangaiti anō hoki - he wāhi kākāriki o roto, he whare mātotoru ake, whare utu ngāwari ake anō hoki.

Waihoki, ka whakaritehia ngā waka tūmatanui tere, whāomo anō hoki, ā, ka whakataketake i ō tātou wāhi tūmatanui.

Ko Te Tiriti, rātou ko te tairaru āhuarangi, ko te whai whare ngā take hira ki ahau.

I taku noho hei kōwhiringa ahu whakamua, ka kakari ahau mō tino rangatiratanga. Ko ō tātou tūpuna tonu ka mātaki i a tātou, ā, mā te mahi tahi e panoni mārika ai tātou i a Pōneke kia kīia ai koinei te tāone matua taketake o te ao.
