Mr King has lived in Northland most of his life. He is a farmer, fraud investigator, volunteer firefighter, and was previously a NZ Police Detective.
“I’m a proud Northland boy who has always called this place home, so it’s a thrill to be chosen. Now I’m looking forward to hitting the campaign trail and earning the right to be the strong, local voice Northlanders deserve,” Mr King says.
“I’ve been a tradesman, a police officer, a farmer and a businessman. Whether you’re running a small business in Kerikeri, farming in Kaeo or showing visitors around in a stunning spot like the Bay of Islands, I know our local communities and their needs well.
Meanwhile the MP for Northland continues to live in Auckland Central and just visit Northland from time to time.
