New Plymouth District Council

New Plymouth District At Large

The New Plymouth District 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 14 councillors and the mayor. This election is for the five councillors elected by all voters in the city. The other councillors will be elected to represent wards (areas in the city). This is a single transferable vote (STV) election, so you vote by ranking the candidates on your ballot paper. Compare the candidates and their policies to decide who to vote for in the New Plymouth District Council election.

Why I'm standing

I am standing so as to ensure that the ratepayers get best possible value for their hard earned dollar in these times of economic uncertainty.

My priorities
  1. Keep rates to an affordable level for every ratepayer.
  2. Streamline council operations and procedures to promote a carbon neutral operation.
  3. Keep the city and environment clean, bright and attractive to promote an air of pride.
