Les Jones is standing in the Mangere electorate in the 2020 Elections. He is the only candidate fielded by Climate First.His nomination was approved at the AGM and 3 billboards have been erected on Coronation Rd, Massey Rd and Favona Rd. Other campaigning has been put on hold due to Covid level three restrictions, but things are beginning to start up again from 31st August when Auckland reverts to level 2. Voters can only vote for Les as a candidate; Climate First is only an unregistered party, which means that it has no list but the party name appears alongside his name on the ballot form.

Note on policies
Climate First has been developing policies over the last two years, and because many of our policies are heavily reliant on analysing emissions statistics, changing greenhouse gas measurements in the NZ Inventory, can render our calculations out of date. Several of our major policy essays are based on the 2013 inventory and projections from the second biennial report. The most important change has been in the 2015 inventory, which lowered values for the whole 1990-2015 time series by about 2 Mtns below the 2014 figures. However as both the base 1990 figure and the current 2015 figures have been reduced, our conclusions remain valid. Because Climate First's policies are based on clear principles, small changes in actual values do not change our fundamental recommendations.
