Brooke Loader believes that a focus on education, employment, and regional development will build safe and strong communities in the Waikato and in New Zealand.
Labour will do this by promoting post-school education, apprenticeships, innovation and decent jobs within the region to create a sense of pride in our communities. As a part of this focus, Labour will make community policing a priority and create a safer environment for rural towns.
Brooke considers the promotion of regional development through sustainable primary industry, supporting small business and developing robust transport and infrastructure to be key considerations in the development of the Waikato.
