Why I'm standing

I think our local voice is unheard and believe I can help facilitate real grassroots consultation. Kaipātiki is a location full of potential to attract NZers and tourists to our region. Our children deserve affordable access to sports, arts and music yet this is unobtainable for many, I would like more financial support to fulfil the aspirations and potential of our tamariki. Our elderly are precious they need meaningful connection in community, passing on wisdom.

My priorities
  1. Facilitate community connection, neighbourhood events; reducing loneliness, crime and poverty. Unity.
  2. Protect our Three Waters and other ratepayer owned assets from exploitation.
  3. Ensure rental homes are healthy and safe, reducing illness and are affordable.
About me

I have lived here for 11 years and love our community. Employed at Hardy's Health Store for six years in Glenfield Mall gave me insight into my customers and their needs. I will bring back neighbourhood friendliness with street parties and local events, to connect as we did in the past in the 70s, 80s and 90s. This may reduce loneliness, crime and poverty if we care for our neighbours with better empathy and understanding.
