List Rank 5 | Candidate for Te Atatu
Simon is a Civil and Environmental Engineer with 23 years experience in roles for the private sector and local government. This includes ten years leading engineering, planning, tendering, and construction teams primarily in Auckland, Wellington, and Fiji.
He is standing for ACT because he believes in the principles of the party where communities, individuals and business will lead the way.
"ACT promotes innovation, not regulation - reducing waste to landfill, bringing real sustainability in construction and building, and clean water in towns and country alike. One task for achieving this is replacing the RMA, which is not fit for purpose and needs to go."
Simon has three boys at high school. They share a love of loud music, fast cars, biking, fitness, good science, and good ideas. His youngest son has Down Syndrome and Simon intends to take a disability perspective to Parliament.
David Seymour on Simon
I am thrilled to have a fellow engineer standing for ACT. Simon is the face of modern ACT, bringing an environmental perspective backed by having actually done the business solving large scale environmental problems here and internationally. He would raise the standard of environmental debate in parliament overnight.
Help us get Simon to Parliament.
Change Your Future. Party Vote ACT.
