Kieran McAnulty is a Labour List Member of Parliament based in Wairarapa and he is the Labour candidate for the Wairarapa electorate.
Kieran is proud of his deep roots in Wairarapa – his family has lived there for over 170 years since his great-grandmother’s great-grandfather, Henry Burling arrived as the first settler in what is now Featherston.
Kieran is standing for Wairarapa because he is passionately committed to the region and its people. Up until his election to Parliament he was a volunteer firefighter, and he remains a board member of Wings over Wairarapa and Golden Shears. Kieran is also a former trustee of the Masterton Community Trust and is a fanatic Wairarapa-Bush supporter.Read more
Kieran is standing for Labour because Labour is committed to the success of regional New Zealand. Labour supports rural and regional areas like Wairarapa and backs our primary industries and the people involved in them.
Upon election to Parliament he was promoted to the position of Junior Government Whip.
Kieran believes it is fundamental to who we are as Kiwis that New Zealand has sustainable rural communities, strong communities that are supported by Government in recognition of their importance to our economy, society and identity as a nation.
He continues to live in Masterton, and spends as much time as he can out and about in Wairarapa, Tararua and the Central Hawkes Bay regions, which comprise the Wairarapa Electorate.
