Jamie believes the key issues for Hamilton East are health, education, housing, and jobs. He is proud of the fact that Labour stands for aspiration, opportunity, and helping hard-working kiwis get ahead.

Jamie, married father of four, and former school teacher and church minister, is an active member of the Hamilton East community. His family enjoy being out and about on weekends, visiting Hamilton’s many parks, river cycle ways, and playgrounds.

Globally, he sees climate change as the most pressing issue. He believes our clean, green image, combined with Kiwi ingenuity, provides tremendous potential for New Zealand to be a world leader in areas like renewable energy and fossil fuel reduction.

Jamie, a Hamilton Boys’ High School Old Boy, cares deeply about education and students achieving their full potential. His specific experience centres around the role of the arts in education as a way to cultivate vital life skills such as confidence, creativity, and cooperation.

Jamie believes every New Zealander, regardless of their background, deserves the opportunity to realise their full potential and participate in their community and society.

Some of Jamie's career highlights include serving as a Music Teacher at Berkley Normal Middle School, being a Church Minister and celebrant, and earning his Graduate Diploma of Teaching from the University of Waikato. He is an active musician and sportsman, enjoying cricket, football and golf.

Jamie is proud to be part of a growing, vibrant, family-friendly city with a key role to play in New Zealand’s future.
