Why I'm standing

I'm standing for the Kaipātiki Local Board because I want there to be more young people in local government. I want to be part of making decisions that will affect our area for generations to come and I want to ensure that the voices of young people are heard.

My priorities
  1. Putt climate action at the forefront of all local board decisions.
  2. Ensure intergenerational equity with long term thinking.
  3. Promote greater community participation in local government.
About me

I grew up in Totara Vale and have lived in Kaipātiki ever since, attending local schools such as Target Road Primary School and Wairau Intermediate. I'm a daily public transport user, a cyclist and a student. I believe I bring a unique lived experience and a fresh new perspective.
