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.

Congratulations Ben!

Congratulations are due to my brother Ben Clark. 

Ben was yesterday evening confirmed as the Labour Party candidate for North Shore at the next election.

Ben is a smart, thoughtful and civic-minded individual.  He’s had a busy few weeks with the birth of his second daughter, lots on at work – and the increasing demands of politics. 

Ben will bring plenty to the party; he’s got a good policy brain and is a tireless submitter to select committees.  Career-wise, he’s been a computer programmer since leaving Otago in the mid nineties. 

On a lighter note: the prospect of brothers in politics has generated some amusement in media circles, from comparisons with Britain’s Miliband brothers in the ODT to photoshopped depictions of the dynamic duo in the Standard.

Welcome aboard Ben!  I look forward to campaigning alongside you at the next election.
