It's been a challenging start to the year, with our community still recovering from flooding and cyclone Gabrielle. Through these tough times I've seen our community step up and provide support for those who need it, which shows how incredible the North Shore can be, especially when we come together.
It's hard to believe it's been almost three years since I was elected as your MP, and this October, Kiwis will go to the ballot box and choose the next government. I think we are at a crossroads this election. I see real challenges on the North Shore with increasing crime and the skyrocketing cost of living, but also huge opportunities if we are bold enough to seize them with both hands.
I'll be fighting every day for the North Shore.

2022 has been a big year, and 2023 is going to be even bigger. I'd like to thank you for the support you've shown me; being your MP for North Shore is a privilege, and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in next year advocating for you and fighting for a better deal for the North Shore.
I hope you and your loved ones have a fun and restful holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

When I speak with people on the Shore, it's clear there's a real energy to innovate and grow, but with an economic downturn, increases in crime, and the rising cost of living, it's becoming more and more difficult to get ahead.

This month marks two years since you chose me to be your MP for North Shore. I am still incredibly grateful and humbled and will continue to work tirelessly to represent the people of our community to the best of my ability.
The last two years have flown by, and I am now very concerned, like most, that our country is heading in the wrong direction and that, more than ever, we need a National-led government in 2023.
I will keep fighting for the North Shore and value your continued support.

We have an amazing community, and I'm reminded of that every time I speak with people on the Shore or with one of our advocacy groups or businesses. From our innovators and creators to our natural environment, we've got something truly special. Sadly, the problems that plague our community, like increasing crime and the cost of living, continue to make life hard, particularly for the most vulnerable.
I'm working hard as your MP to put forward solutions and be an advocate for you, and your support makes that possible. I want to thank you for backing me so I can back our community.

It's been a busy few weeks getting out in the community and travelling the country listening to people's oral submissions on Three Waters.
Clearly, we're facing some real struggles, whether it's the skyrocketing cost of living or the increase in crime. We need real leadership to tackle the issues that are causing Kiwis to go backwards.

Parliament is sitting again after a three-week recess, and I'm returning to Wellington, holding the government to account for their failure to deliver. It's been a busy few weeks out and about on the North Shore, working on the key issues our community is grappling with, especially the huge increase in crime and cost of living crisis.

It's been a busy few weeks on the North Shore and down in Wellington. National has been championing the issues most important to our community, particularly the increase in crime and the cost of living crisis.
These are huge challenges for the country, but I've never been more confident with focused action and proper leadership, we can chart a path out of the problems we face.

This week is Budget Week, where the Government sets out their priorities and spending for the coming year. Labour has continued their taxpayer sponsored spend-up and introduced the largest new spending in our country's history.

It's been a busy first few months here on the Shore and down in Wellington. Between our country's cost of living crisis and significant local issues such as crime, I've been working hard to be your voice.
