Meet Reuben

Reuben was born and bred in Canterbury and is proud to be the Labour candidate for Selwyn.

Since completing a degree at the New Zealand Broadcasting School, Reuben has had over 20 years’ experience producing in the creative worlds of the Arts and Broadcasting, showcasing and reflecting New Zealand’s identity and culture.

After the Christchurch earthquakes Reuben made the commitment to stay in Ōtautahi/Christchurch and lead the What Now team to bring joy to children’s lives and work with communities to rebuild Canterbury together. These events strengthened his commitment to Ōtautahi – its people and the land – and led him to campaign hard with determination to win the Banks Peninsula Community Board seat for Labour.

His whole life has been about working with people and getting the job done.

Reuben will bring heart, motivation, grit and determination to the next Labour Government.
