Guest Speaker 7.30pm Chloe Swarbrick Green Party Candidate - from the Auckland Mayoralty Campaign to the Green Party Campaign
As a journalist finishing a law degree in late 2015, Chlöe Swarbrick, aged 22, never saw herself becoming a politician. Horrendously low voter turnout convinced her to enter the Auckland Mayoralty race in 2016 in order to engage the disengaged and disenfranchised. With a tiny budget and a lot of help from like-minded volunteers, she came in third, with just under 30,000 votes.
Chlöe put herself forward as a Green Party Candidate for the 2017 election because it was the party that shared her values of compassion, pragmatism, equality and hope. Chloe will be campaigning hard for the Party Vote on the same issues that resonated with Aucklanders during her mayoral campaign - housing, transport and chronic homelessness. At the same time she is juggling a number of small businesses, including a donut shop.
