Meet Ben Sandford
Rotorua is an amazing place, but we can be better. As your MP I will work hard to make sure we have the resources, investment and opportunities to be the best place in NZ to live, work and visit.
Kia ora, I'm Ben, and with your vote, I'll be your MP for Rotorua, advocating for solutions to local issues, representing your interests in parliament and creating change that improves our communities.
Born and raised locally, I work as a lawyer, uniquely aware of the issues affecting our region. Not only did I grow up playing sport here, I'm a three time Olympian, with vast experience in sporting governance including three years as Chair of the World Anti-Doping Agency's Athlete Committee.
I'm passionate about equity and success for iwi, community, businesses and out people, so lets work together to make sure everyone has the opportunities they need to reach their potential. A vote for me is a vote for you. Your voice, your whanau, your community, our future.
