Geoff Simmons is Leader of The Opportunities Party (TOP). Geoff is an economist, and in previous lives has written four books, run his own business and been a manager in the public service. Geoff has spent his career searching for solutions to New Zealand's biggest problems such as the housing crisis and our environmental emergency. He has seen that the biggest barrier to fundamental change is lack of political will - politicians are too keen to keep their cushy jobs to risk trying anything new. Geoff is in politics to change that. He wants to provide New Zealanders with an option for real change that will create a truly prosperous, sustainable and fair nation.
