Tapu Elia as the first Polynesian Mayor of Porirua 2022

Kia Ora, Kia Orana, Talofa and warm greetings e te whanau,

He aha te mea nui o te ao?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata!

What is the most important thing in the world?

It is the people! It is the people! It is the people!

Ko maungapu toku maunga

Ko rua i kakau toku awa

Ko nga puariki toku vaka

Ko au rupe te rangi i toku marae

Ko Ru toku tipuna

Ko ngati tepaki toku iwi

Ko tetupu o rongo toku hapu

Ko Tapu Elia toku ingoa

I am running for Mayor of Porirua 2022.
With the local elections in September around the corner, the people will be able to elect fresh blood to the table and someone like me with fresh ideas to turn our covid response around.
Walking hand in hand with the local mana whenua, the Nga Toa Iwi, we can achieve it!

If you’re keen to support my campaign or get involved please watch this 5 minute video presentation of what I’m championing for in our community.

Whether you can endorse me, donate, volunteer or have a chat to your friends and neighbours, everything helps!


Nga mihi nui, Meitaki Maata and Fa’afetai Lava,

Tapu Elia
Candidate for Mayor of Porirua 2022

Keep exploring. Keep dreaming. Keep asking why. Don’t settle for what you already know. Never stop believing in the power of your ideas, your imagination, your hard work to change the world.
