Christchurch East Electorate

Business owner Shane Wiremu comes from a working class, grassroots background, and believes that common sense values are seriously lacking in our current political arena. Having faced adversity, and coming from modest beginnings, Shane is deeply passionate about improving outcomes for New Zealanders through true democracy.

The professional opportunities that have crossed Shane’s path lead him to working in Australia and China, before returning back to New Zealand, and becoming a small business owner in manufacturing. Throughout his career, Shane has gained broad experience from various roles, including  design, sales, human resources, and as an employer.

Shane lives locally in Christchurch with his wife and son.
