Why I'm standing

I believe Hāwera to be a fantastic place to live. I first came to Hāwera as an 11 year old. I schooled here, had my first jobs here, married here and had our first child here. Whilst living away for 33 years I was often drawn back to visit family. Returning to live in 2020, I now want to make a further contribution of service to our community through the Te Hāwera Community Board.

My priorities
  1. To establish a single and affordable facility for the housing of Hāwera's performing arts.
  2. To initiate dialogue and research concerning increasing capacity for council-owned rentals.
  3. Be an advocate for the environment, supporting initiatives to reduce waste.
About me

I have been a Christian for the past 52 years. I believe strongly in the principles of integrity, honesty, truthfulness, authenticity and building legacy to mention but a few. I believe in respectful and robust dialogue in order to reach the best solution or agreement. I have served on a wide range of committees and trusts including involvement in Rotary, emergency housing, mayoral relief disaster funding, educational trusts, food banks, charity retail stores etc.
