Nathaniel believes that New Zealand’s House of Representatives should truly represent New Zealand’s diverse cultures, communities, regions and social demographics. With his varied work experience – chef, landscaper, labourer, hospital orderly – and his solid Labour family upbringing, Nathaniel knows that he can be a true representative for the working people of the region, with the beliefs and values he was raised with.
He has lived and worked in the Coromandel most of his life, along with spells in Wellington, Rarotonga and Australia. Nathaniel’s first job was as a Thames Hospital orderly. With family also working there, Nathaniel knows from first-hand experience how important rural health services are locally and across New Zealand. This is why Nathaniel is delighted to represent Labour in a government bringing services and funding back into the regions.
