Why I'm standing

Kāpiti is a fantastic place to live. I want to do my bit to ensure that it is the place we all want it to be in the years to come. Dee and I have been here 15 years, Raised a family, made great friends, developed businesses and become involved in community groups. I love what I see here, intend to be here a long time, and I got involved to help my community.

My priorities
  1. Being a part of, and developing a collaborative team that works for the betterment of our community.
  2. Housing. Sort housing and you sort a lot of community issues. Warm, healthy and fit for purpose.
  3. The regulatory aspect of consenting needs to be addressed. Kāpiti's reputation is appalling.

I committed to being Paraparaumu Ward Councillor full time three years ago. Why?
