Geoff Simmons

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.
