Michael, his wife Jewel, and their 5 children live in Napier. Michael runs a successful business in the
building and civil industry, currently employing 18 staff, and growing. Michael has always had a
heart for people and his desire to make a difference in the community saw him stand as a candidate
for Flaxmere in the recent Hastings City Council elections, placing second by only 97 votes.
Last month Michael was a recipient of the 2023 Unity Award from the Napier City Pilot Trust for
exceptional contribution to the Napier region. This was following his outstanding leadership,
community networking and coordination of the 300 strong Man Up relief team in Hawkes Bay after
Cyclone Gabrielle, which devastated the Hawkes Bay region in February this year. He and his
employees where one of the first responders to the crisis.
Michael is currently the deputy chair for the Kaiwhakamana Hawkes Bay Regional Prison and he is
also the Hawkes Bay Coordinator for The Freedoms and Rights Coalition.
“I not a career politician, but I want to serve my community and be a voice for all those who have
been forgotten and hard hit by recent events. I believe in Vision New Zealand because they are the
only party that is truly for the people of New Zealand. I am proud to stand for a party whose policies
and purpose are in sync with my own convictions, core values and beliefs”.
