Living and working in the Waimakariri electorate, I enjoy meeting with our residents as their local MP in my Kaiapoi and Rangiora offices, at my night meetings, over 60s coffee mornings, or my Northern Christchurch and Oxford community constituent clinics.
As MP for Waimakariri, I’m always looking at ways to help our residents be heard on what they need to get ahead by bringing the relevant stakeholders to the electorate to hear directly about our concerns or to take the views of the Waimakariri to Parliament. Whether it’s the three-laning southbound over the Waimakariri Bridge or the recent announcement of plans for after-hours health service provision, I take a community-led approach to support our residents to be resourced for our growth and infrastructure needs. This is something I work hard at.
I was elected Waimakariri MP in 2014, with a majority increase in 2017 of over 10,000 - an endorsement that tells me our residents value accessibility and commitment.
In Parliament, I serve as National’s Junior Whip, Spokesperson for Mental Health and Associate Spokesperson for Health.
