Why I'm standing

I have loved living in this region for over 23yrs and have received so much from the community. I now have the space and energy to give something back. The present hard-working council has inspired me to feel this is a worthwhile way to support our communities.

My priorities
  1. Pushing for greater provision of rental housing and affordable homeownership.
  2. Providing safe cycleways for Northern Kawatiri/Buller.
  3. Supporting ongoing work on quality water supplies.
About me

I have worked largely in various sectors of education, mainly in early childhood education and primary and have networked a lot across the two engaging with whānau and kaiako/teachers. I have been actively involved in our union both at a branch and regional level and enjoy being involved at an organisational level.
