The Green Party candidate list

by frog

The Greens have just announced their candidate list, as voted on by party members:

  1. Jeanette Fitzsimons
  2. Russel Norman
  3. Sue Bradford
  4. Metiria Turei
  5. Sue Kedgley
  6. Keith Locke
  7. Kevin Hague (West Coast, DHB Chief Executive)
  8. Catherine Delahunty (East Coast, activist and chairperson of the Tairawhiti Beneficiary Advocacy Trust)
  9. Kennedy Graham  (Christchurch, senior diplomat and law lecturer)
  10. David Clendon (Auckland, resource management lecturer)
  11. Gareth Hughes (Wellington, climate change campaigner)
  12. Steffan Browning (Kaikoura, horticulturalist and Soil & Health Association spokesperson)

Unsurprisingly Russel as co-leader has risen up to number 2.  I think that people will find the candidates 7 through 12 bring huge range of skills and experiences into a shadow caucus.  Take for instance Kevin Hague, who can list as joint achievements as being (among many other things) the Chief Executive of the West Coast District Health Board and being on the Hamilton rugby field protesting the Springbok Tour in 1981.

The full list is available here.
