Why I'm standing

I think more can be done to advocate for local interests within the Dunedin City Council environment. The community board provides a link between the Dunedin City Council (and the money) and local communities. I would like to see this link strengthened, and for the Dunedin City Council to use the community board's to develop local policies that reflect local interests. Decisions that affect local people should be made as locally as possible.

My priorities
  1. Improve public transport in this area and consider how each community might best be served.
  2. Develop ways to communicate more effectively with local communities.
  3. Establish what each community within this area sees as their priorities for their particular area.
About me

I have lived in Blueskin Bay for 16 years and in the Dunedin area for a lot longer. I've been involved in community activities like the Blueskin News. I am a scientific academic at the university experienced in interpreting complex data and in facilitating consensus and collaboration among people of different background and opinion. I'm a good listener who reflects on the evidence and provides thoughtful opinions and would bring these skills to the board.
