Meet Tāmati

For many New Zealanders, Tamati Coffey is a familiar and friendly face: an award-winning presenter whose work in the broadcasting industry has spanned a decade. Since leaving full-time television in 2013, he has actively pursued a career in politics.

Tamati's career has taken him all around New Zealand, and had him engaging with communities right across the country. It's partly through this work that he has seen the inequality in our society — the wealthy have become more wealthy, while those with much less are holding down 40-hour jobs on minimum wages and having to resort to food banks to feed their families.
His involvement in politics has been spurred on by a concern that our people are currently not being provided with the basics: decent housing, decent wages and jobs, and support for those who need it. Tamati believes Government has the ability to change lives for the better, and wants to make sure those decisions are made by people with their hearts in the right place.
