Cambridge Community Board

Cambridge Subdivision

The Cambridge Community Board represents your local community and advocates to Waipa District Council about local issues, including public transport and facilities such as libraries and parks. The board is made up of seven members: five members elected by voters, including four members from your area, and two councillors from the Waipa District council. This is a first past the post (FPP) election, so you vote by ticking the name of your preferred candidate on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the Cambridge Community Board election.

Why I'm standing

I love living in Cambridge and raising my family here, and as this town faces the challenges of growth, I want to make sure Cambridge retains that which makes it special and a great place to live.

My priorities
  1. Advocate for a new Cambridge library.
  2. Develop strong relationships with the community.
  3. Ensure Cambridge CBD remains vibrant for the whole community.
About me

I have gained invaluable experience in my first term as a board member; experience that will be crucial to ensuring the community has a voice to council and the needs of Cambridge are seen and understood. I bring strategic thinking, cooperation, imagination and courage to my role as a board member.
