Andy Oakley spent his first 20 years growing up in New Zealand’s lowest socio-economic suburb in the 1960 and 70s. He witnessed the arrival of gangs, the trend towards social dysfunction and poverty during the 1970s and 80s.
He is the author of two books, ‘Cannons Creek to Waitangi’, a book that details how and why he made a Treaty claim to the Waitangi Tribunal and also ‘Once We Were One, The Fraud of Modern Separatism’, a book that exposes ‘race’ as a social construct, highlights fraudulent changes made to our history which have resulted in racial separatism and also allowed a false version of the Treaty to be taught to every child in New Zealand.
In his spare time he has spent many years racing both motorcycles and classic cars. Andy lives with his partner Isabelle in Raumati. He has two sons and one granddaughter.
While growing up in Lower Hutt Warren Preiss observed the contrast between how in his own circle of mixed ethnicity family friends differing ethnicities were simply welcomed and ultimately transcended, while at school, his teachers told him that people of European background could not possibly have similar values or experiences to people who are Maori. As an adult he is very concerned that this practice is now mandatory in the New Zealand Curriculum.
Warren left New Zealand for Europe at age 19, and lived most his 20s there, serving military time, and working in construction and hospitality. He returned to New Zealand in 2003 and as manager rescued an Organics company from near bankruptcy, later he ran his own email and website based shop Transparent Organics.
He now offers and facilitates Gestalt inspired Relational Groups in the Wairarapa region and is mixing and mastering his first concept album for his band, Queller.
Warren lives with his wife Melanie, their two children and his son in Kahutara, Wairarapa.
In 2018 he was voted by the One New Zealand Party Board as Director-General.

Born in Wanganui (as it was known then) into a politically aware family, Tina lived most of her life in Rotorua with the past 15 years spent in the Eastern Bay of Plenty near Kawerau with her self-employed husband of 20 years; Andrew (Ngati Kahungunu/Tuwharetoa) and their teenage son.

Away from work, Tina has spent more than 20 years in dog training and competes in Dog Agility. Her friends call her a ‘Political Geek’ but since shedding her tribalistic tendencies and embracing evidence-based ideas and opinions, Tina has learned that in politics, all is not as it seems and there are lessons to be had from politicians of all stripes – be they ‘Shining Examples’ or ‘Tragic Warnings’!!
Tina is a staunch believer in freedom of speech, diversity of thought and opinion and equity of opportunity all underpinned by ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’.
In March 2019, Tina was invited onto the Board of One New Zealand Party as Member Representative.
