Hi, I’m Brooke van Velden, ACT Party Deputy Leader.
I’m running for the electorate seat of Tamaki and I want to be your voice, as your local MP.
I grew up in Auckland, it’s where I call home. I’m from a family of small business owners and hard workers. I’m an economist, a campaigner and someone who cares about our stunning corner of the world.
The reason that I’m running is to offer our community a fresh choice. Our politics can often seem stuck in a rut, because people in the Beehive often don’t ask the right questions… Nor listen to good suggestions, if they come from the ‘wrong’ side. I’d like to change all that.
Tamaki is an awesome place to live with great communities, but it faces some real challenges. It takes too long to deliver infrastructure, we have to contend with raw sewage on our beaches. And crime is out-of-control.
Most of all, people around here deserve an MP who works night and day for them, just as David Seymour does in Epsom. That’s the advantage a local ACT MP can offer you.
I want to give the people of Tamaki a stronger voice in Wellington. And a change for the better.
But first, I want to listen. Over the coming months, you’ll see me out and about, so please come and say “hello’. I hope you will tell me what you think about Tamaki’s future, and how we can make it better for everyone who lives here.
So, please contact me to tell me what you think, or offer your support. In the end, I’m here to listen and work for you.
