We can create towns and cities that are healthier and happier. It will not only cost us less, it will enrich our lives for generations to come.

I’m genuinely excited about the opportunities we have to do politics differently.

There are many MPs like me, across all political parties, who are seeking a more collaborative, democratic and consensus-based approach to discussing and solving the biggest issues we face as a society, together.

MMP has given New Zealand a head start in having more diverse representation in Parliament. The more of us (including all the people who live and work outside of politics) that participate, respectfully and collaboratively – the healthier our communities and democracy will be.

Because of this, despite facing very challenging issues, such as climate change, inequality, the marginalisation of vulnerable communities and economic stagnation, I feel more optimism, hope and energy than I could in any other role right now.

I’ve been an MP for the Green Party of New Zealand since 2011. I'm a proud Kiwi originally from the states.

I'm with the Green Party because they value people and the environment, and have the long term solutions to our challenges.

There are many ways that you can make a difference. Will you sign-up to volunteer in Mt Albert?
