Wellington is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. We’re proud to call Wellington home and we know you are too.

But as the world goes through a number of paradigm shifts with regard to the environment, housing, our economy, transport technology, and community safety; Wellington needs a competent team on the Council that has a plan to deliver on the issues that matter.

Our city and region, by world standards, is prosperous, has a vibrant culture, unequalled urban environment, and a bustling arts and entertainment scene. As a result, an increasing number of people are attracted to the Wellington region for work and lifestyle opportunities. But the resulting infrastructure deficit is growing, and a lack of leadership is seeing our city falling further behind many others in New Zealand.

We’ve been hearing strong community frustration with the current Mayor, City Council and Regional Council in recent years. Their lack of vision for the future of Wellington, fiscal blowouts, lack of accountability and transparency, and pork barrel politics involving pet projects is unbelievable and it’s time they were shown the door.

We believe the time is right for a new voice in Wellington politics - a voice with a competent plan for the future, an understanding that ratepayers money needs to be spent wisely, and a determination to ensure Wellington remains one of the world’s best cities and regions to live in.

Your voice is the Wellington Party.
