Why I'm standing

I wish to give back to my community. Being on Horizons Regional Council learning and bringing my knowledge back to the community so they can make informed decisions is my way of doing this.

My priorities
  1. Utilize net zero carbon emissions by 2050 to reinstate a form of public transport in Ruapehu.
  2. Access to templates and guidelines for compliance so that a more effective way can be found.
  3. Ensure networks are in place so that we stay informed regarding Three Waters in our community.
About me

Owning a local business and being a part of Ruapehu Federated Farmers gives me networks and hands-on knowledge of what our communities are facing here and now.
