Why I'm standing

I believe social cohesion of residents in the area not born in New Zealand can be strengthened through leadership that can connect to all levels of the community. I'd like to be part of embracing diversity and multiculturalism. I will represent the interests of many with an extended family of Chinese, Indian ethnicities and tangata whenua. I would advocate for the needs of the elderly, families with young children, with disabilities and special needs.

My priorities
  1. Maximise use of roading network until alternative travel modes are adequately established.
  2. Increase urban forest canopies to mitigate against rising temperatures, flooding and soil erosion.
  3. Stop the removal of on-street parking until thorough investigation of business and individual needs.
About me

As a certified governance professional and educator, I abide by several ethical codes that set the ground rules for honesty, integrity and professionalism in our practices. I have a track record of achieving outcomes successfully and the ability to fully engage with all levels of society, having been a visitor, migrant, renter, student, volunteer, parent, dog owner, manager, director and mostly an individual that wants the best for the community and contribute whenever possible.
