We need a truly representative voice for the New Zealand people in Parliament, not career politicians acting as agents of international organisations to impose policies that divide our society. We believe it's about time a good Kwi with common sense and a real grasp of the issues is given the opportunity to bring vision, transparency and accountability back into government this election.

Grant Mountjoy is our Rock The Vote NZ List candidate. He is a former teacher and all-time pedestrian, has an eye for catching detail, such as street cameras multiplying on intersections and the mushroom-like sprouting of cellular masts in your street or suburb! So, in an effort to find out, Grant put himself forward as a Rock The Vote candidate at the 2022 Local Body election, determined to unearth whether changes occurring on his doorstep in Central Auckland were as surprising to the public at large as it was to him. The quest continues! Grant is concerned about the invasive hand of government in local body business and is an ardent supporter of local infrastructure remaining in local control. Grant is also Rock The Vote NZ’s Minutes Secretary and Media Producer.

Michael Clarkson

Michael Clarkson is a stay-at-home father to his young daughter. He comes from a sporting background, competing in mountain biking and inline speed skating, regionally, nationally and internationally, and is passionate about health and fitness.

As a former orderly working for the South Canterbury District Health Board, Michael Clarkson has seen first-hand the many issues with our health system, such as understaffing and the undervaluing of health workers. He would like to implement a “Workers Welfare advocacy service”, an idea he’s been working on for some time, “mainly due to the current failings of the health industry”.

Michael believes there needs to be a review of the Accident Compensation Commission and ACC legislation, to effect improvements in the ACC hearing process and outcomes for injured New Zealanders.

Michael’s main drive is to see transparency and accountability in all sectors, which saw him run for the Timaru District Council in the 2022 Local Body Elections as part of a newly-formed ratepayers’ association. Prior to that he was a Twitter commentator for Martyn Bradbury's “Waatea Fifth Estate”.

Another area of concern for Michael, as the father of a young child, is the school curriculum and the “driving implementation of ideologies that have nothing to do with education”.

Michael says “Our freedoms, freedom of speech, and our values have been massively eroded in recent times and it’s time for them to be reclaimed”.
