Why I'm standing

I am running to ensure public consultation leads to local decisions, for example no to Three Waters?

My priorities
  1. Allow the community to make its own informed decisions regarding the Three Waters legislation.
  2. Ensure that we implement the Rolleston flyover right first time and that it is future proof.
  3. Sustainable housing development to support our districts growth.
About me

I am a construction engineer who has worked on major projects for over 40 years. Including Te Kaha and Lincoln University. I can bring this experience to support Selwyn's new facilities.
