I’m proud to be have been elected as the MP for the Rotorua electorate and the voice in Parliament for this large, beautiful and diverse part of New Zealand.
My electorate offices in Rotorua, Te Puke and Kawerau are incredibly busy, and my staff and I are working hard to help you where we can. Since I have been elected, thousands of people have approached my offices with various issues. I have helped constituents on a diverse range of matters including housing, benefit entitlements, victim support, small business opportunities, and local governance queries.
My home town of Rotorua is a fantastic place and the wider electorate of Rotorua has so much to offer. From culture and geothermal resources, to mountains, native bush and forests, stunning lakes and exquisite beaches, we have it all. We are the capital of tourism, mountain biking and grow more Kiwifruit than any other electorate in New Zealand. Forestry and farming are also extremely important to our local economy.
If you live in the Rotorua electorate and have an issue I can help with or that you think I should be aware of please get in touch - my contact details can be found here.
I look forward to seeing you around the Bay of Plenty soon.
