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.

Why I'm standing

I want West Ward to get its fair share from the Hamilton City Council.

My priorities
  1. Providing council maintained toilets in shopping areas of Nawton and other Western suburbs.
  2. Providing parking bays for people who have to park on the road.
  3. Putting city council regulations in place so infill housing does not affect quality of life.
About me

I am a combination of energy and enthusiasm. I worked as a pharmacist more than 50 hours a week in the testing times of Covid-19. I have also worked for the community on a voluntary basis. I have been conducting laughter yoga classes, teaching yoga and led community tree planting. I now want to take more responsibility and do more for my community.
