Hamilton City Council

West General Ward

The Hamilton City Council provides local services and facilities, such as public transport, rubbish and recycling, libraries, parks, and recreation facilities. It also makes decisions about building and planning, local regulations, and infrastructure, such as water supply and sewerage. The council is made up of 14 councillors and the mayor. Councillors are elected to represent wards (areas in the city). Six councillors will be elected from the West ward. This is a single transferable vote (STV) election, so you vote by ranking the candidates on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the Hamilton City Council election.

Why I'm standing

I love our city and passionate about making our city a great place live and enjoy.

My priorities
  1. No significant rate increases.
  2. Investing in community spaces.
  3. Accessibility for all.
About me

I am a good listener and will respect everyone's views around the council table. I can work with anyone around the council table, we might disagree on some policy but there will always be respect from me.
