Why I'm standing

I want to ensure our water and w'enua is protected and quality drinking water is maintained as a priority. I care about these things as kaitiaki for our tamariki and mokōpuna.

My priorities
  1. Protection of our waterways to ensure quality drinking water is provided throughout all seasons.
  2. Protection of our environment and w'enua through sustainable management for the future.
  3. Pride in being a culturally diverse economic community.
About me

I've got many years experience working in local and central government, education, science and research, the finance sector and trade unions and also Māori business. I believe in robust business management and collaboration with Māori as Kaitiaki of our wai, moana, w'enua and environment. I grew up in Hāwera and after 20 years in Wellington, returned to Ōpunake 15 years ago and now I'm ready to contribute within our local community for my mokōpuna.
