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.
