Why I'm standing

I have lived in Queenstown for most of the last 25 years and see a number of unique challenges facing our district. I am offering my skills and training as a professional engineer and my time as a resident and ratepayer to contribute towards the solutions to these challenges.

My priorities
  1. Listen to the concerns of the community.
  2. Consider input from across the Queenstown Lakes district.
  3. Arrive at council decisions that provide the best outcomes for our district.
About me

I have been involved with a number community organisations and am used to working with a diverse range of people. I am prepared to listen with an open mind to the concerns of our communities.
