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 have experience as a councillor for eight years in a city of four million people. I can apply my legal knowledge and governmental abilities to deliver a better Hamilton.

My priorities
  1. Stop Three Waters. There has been far too little consultation.
  2. Save the Founders Theatre. Give TOTI an opportunity to come up with a business plan.
  3. Review the Standing Orders of Council. It is important to maintain the integrity of elected members.
About me

I have extensive managerial experience. I have been the President of a Professional body in NZ. Currently the Deputy President of Hamilton Residents and Ratepayers Association (HRRA). I have a good understanding of council matters and demand detailed and accurate reports at council meetings.
