Hutt City Council

Hutt City At Large

The Hutt 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 12 councillors and the mayor. This election is for the six councillors elected by all voters in the city. The other councillors will be elected to represent wards (areas in the city). This is a first past the post (FPP) election, so you vote by ticking the name of your preferred candidate on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the Hutt City Council election.

Why I'm standing

I believe democracy is a precious taonga and requires citizens to take an active role to preserve its integrity. This is a 'put my money where my mouth is' moment! I believe I can contribute in a positive and non-partisan manner.

My priorities
  1. Encourage all council actions to prioritise the existential need for climate change adaptation.
  2. Do my part as a councillor to work productively and co-operatively on the many challenges ahead.
  3. Prioritise infrastructure in all budget considerations.
About me

I was taught from a young age that a satisfying life is achieved by how I manage myself. I gain deep satisfaction from being involved in community activities and practically supporting initiatives. My heart and happiness is in the Hutt Valley and I want to be part of ensuring it remains a great place to live.
