As MP for Waimakariri, I’m always looking at ways to support residents, have their voices heard and help facilitate positive outcomes. It’s important that I am across the views of Waimakariri constituents so I can accurately represent them in Parliament. Whether it’s fighting for after-hours healthcare, the Woodend Bypass, or improved phone and internet connectivity, I take a community-led approach. I try to be as accessible as possible with offices in Kaiapoi and Rangiora, and clinics in Belfast and Oxford. Waimakariri is a rapidly growing region which means roading and infrastructure will be key issues going forward. I will advocate for the good of all residents, whether long-time locals or new to the electorate, to ensure the Waimakariri remains a great place to live, work and play.

As local MP, my role is to support the region to meet the opportunities and embrace the challenges which arise as the electorate continues to grow.
It’s when MPs are working on the ground that we see the impact of decisions made in Wellington on the daily lives of people in our communities. That’s why it’s important for me to make it a priority to ensure the voice of Waimakariri is heard in Parliament, and why I always value hearing from constituents across a range of issues.
