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.

In the House

The House is back in full swing. We’ve been back in Wellington this week and today a new Speaker will be elected to chair Parliament. Here’s my contribution to the first debate of the year – on the Prime Minister’s statement.

National has under-invested in tertiary education. Dunedin apprenticeship numbers are down 26%, and Post-graduate students are dropping out of their studies.  I’ve brought some facts to bear on John Key’s ‘increased apprenticeships’ announcement…

All of my Parliamentary speeches are online. Last year I seized the opportunity as a new MP to get plenty of practice, and was one of Labour’s most prolific speakers.
