Godfrey Rudolph

Green Party

This is the first foray into national politics for Godfrey Rudolph (Ngāpuhi, Ngati Korokoro, Te Wharara, Te Pouka), who is a trained secondary school teacher, a former humanitarian in the New Zealand Defence Force and a small business owner. 

This year he’ll be running against Labour deputy leader and sitting Te Tai Tokerou MP Kelvin Davis and Mana Party leader Hone Harawira.  Rudolph will be the very first candidate the Greens have stood in the Te Tai Tokerau electorate.

Godfrey has previously been involved in local politics, having stood for a local board in Auckland.

He is bilingual, speaking both Māori and English and his work as a secondary school teacher of te reo has instilled a strong belief that all New Zealanders have the right to a good education.

Godfrey is a devoted father and husband.
