I believe that every New Zealander has the right to a lifetime of opportunity, security, and prosperity. 

I'm passionate about education because it opens doors and allows everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential. As Labour's spokesperson for Education I'm fighting for a quality, free, public education system. 

I'm honoured to serve as the Member of Parliament for Rimutaka. The Hutt Valley is my home, it's where I grew up, and I'm committed to giving back to the community that has given so much to me.
