In October I was sworn in as the Mayor of Lower Hutt.
It’s the privilege of my life to serve Hutt people as their Mayor. There is something really special to be able to serve the community where I was raised, and where I live.
This week, we’re taking action on climate change, expanding trades education – and celebrating two years of progress!
We're rebuilding our hospitals, protecting our oceans, and taking mental health seriously.
We want every New Zealander to be happy, safe, and healthy. To do this, we need to support strong, safe communities, and a robust and efficient health system.
We're managing the Government books responsibly, helping more Kiwis into homes, and supporting New Zealanders with disabilities.
We're making progress on tackling the long-term challenges: from homelessness, to strengthening border security, to bringing banking back New Zealand's small towns.
Another busy week, from speaking with world leaders on the world stage about climate change, to equipping our school leavers with everything they need to get ahead in life.
This week was a mental health week of action! We rolled out mental health and addiction support in GPs, announced our suicide prevention strategy and much more!
This week we’ve made more progress, announcing our plans to help more first-home buyers into homes, clean up our rivers, deliver better cancer care and more!
