Saddle Hill Community Board

The Saddle Hill Community Board represents your local community and advocates to Dunedin City Council about local issues, including public transport and facilities such as libraries and parks. The board is made up of six members. 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 Saddle Hill Community Board election.

Why I'm standing

I love living in this area and want to contribute to its life and surroundings and I think it's important all sections of the community have a voice. With no work commitments and my current study programme ending soon, I have time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm to devote to the responsibilities of the community board and I would be honoured to serve.

My priorities
  1. Build a strong, sustainable community across the area to assure the future for our young people.
  2. Improve safe, quality public transport choices (foot and bike paths, buses) to encourage activity.
  3. Increase recycling opportunities – investigate annual kerbside collection scheme to reduce landfill.
About me

Since retiring as a medical practitioner, I have worked voluntarily for a number of local organisations concerned with community wellbeing and inclusiveness. I have Board-level experience, currently as a trustee of the Dunedin Curtain Bank. An independent professional review found I'm a good listener and clear communicator, good at understanding and explaining complicated ideas simply, widely read and a positive and hard working leader, who works well with a team from wide-ranging backgrounds.
