Why I'm standing

I want to help get things right for our beautiful part of New Zealand. And make the best decisions for our future in these changing times. There is much to be proud of here, our people and their ability to identify and develop opportunities which benefit our whānau. And our climate and environment. With government reforms ahead, considered decision-making skills are required. My proven ability to get things done, will be invaluable on our council.

My priorities
  1. Make the right decisions for all sectors on the future of our area in these changing times.
  2. Reinvigorate the shopping areas, so they are places both locals and visitors want to spend time in.
  3. Take a proactive approach to enable council and iwi to collaborate on social and economic development.
About me

With six years experience as a mayor and twelve years as a regional councillor, I have proved I can face the challenges, and love the successes of working for a community, ensuring no sector is left behind as change happens. I would love to help guide our future here. I led a council to make brave decisions of community benefit, investing in necessary infrastructure improvements, and looking after our existing assets wisely for future generations.
