My values are Labour values.

I want to help build a stronger, more caring society. I am passionate about Dunedin, and I bring considerable energy and wide experience to the task of representing this electorate.

My diverse work background has given me an understanding of the economic and social levers that can be pulled to achieve meaningful change.

Economic Development

It has been a big fortnight in politics for me.  David Shearer has reviewed our Labour caucus and refreshed the lineup.

As a relatively new Member of Parliament, I received a big promotion and a new challenge.  I feel privileged to have been trusted with significant new responsibilities as I take over the role of spokesperson for Economic Development and Small Business. I’m excited about the opportunity.

Of course with any promotion comes increased expectations as a related Otago Daily Times editorial makes plain.

For those with an interest in jobs and the economy, TV3’s Firstline asked me where I want to take the portfolios.

In short, David Shearer has shared his vision for a clean, green, diversified economy that creates jobs in a sustainable way. My task is to outline a credible plan to get there.  Elsewhere, I’ve shared in writing some early thoughts about these new responsibilities.
