Pakuranga is one of the best places to raise a family in New Zealand. I am proud to live here with my wife Rebecca and daughter Anna.
Prior to entering politics, I completed Law and Commerce Degrees at the University of Auckland and worked in Commercial Finance at the Bank of New Zealand, as well as serving as an elected Local Board member at Auckland Council.
I am currently spokesperson for Corrections, Youth, and Tertiary Education for the National Party and also serve as Associate Spokesperson for Education and Drug Reform. I will be voting NO to legalising recreational marijuana.
During my first term I championed legislation through Parliament to increase the penalties for dealers of deadly synthetic drugs. These drugs are now classified as Class A controlled drugs with dealers facing the full force of the law.
On October 17 I am asking for your support to continue being your strong voice in Parliament and to get things done for Pakuranga.
