Conservation. I hunt here. I really value protecting the environment from pests and threats. It is really important we look after what we have here in New Zealand.

I have an education background so I am a great fan of pay parity. Also efforts to encourage males into teaching. Only four of the 29 teachers at the last school I worked at were male.

Health, majorly. Especially for nurses. The system is lacking. Child poverty is closely linked to that I guess. Abuse is a big thing and I really hope we can get on top of that.
