Welcome to my website
I am proud to serve as your MP for Selwyn, a role I have held since 2008. Selwyn is a vibrant electorate with a rapidly growing population and an expanding economy that offers many exciting opportunities for the future. When I am out and about attending events in the electorate, I am always inspired by the many fantastic people I meet from all walks of life.
My ministerial responsibilities do mean that I am required to spend a lot of time in Wellington. However, if you live in the Selwyn electorate and have an issue I can help with or something that you think I should know about, please get in touch with my office in Templeton. They are my representatives in the electorate when I am away in Wellington and are able to advise you on the best course of action for your situation.

New classroom for Glentunnel School
I really enjoyed my visit to Glentunnel School last Friday to open the school's brand new classroom. The students were so patient while they waited for me to cut the cake!

To mark Volunteer Week last week I popped into Kirwee Fire Station with some morning tea for the local volunteer firefighters. I would like to say a big thank you to all of the many volunteers around the Selwyn electorate who help out in so many ways by donating their time and energy. Without you, our communities would be much poorer places.
