Wellington City Council

Pukehīnau/Lambton General Ward

The Wellington City Council provides local services and facilities, such as public transport, rubbish and recycling, libraries, parks, and recreation facilities. It also makes decisions about building and planning, local regulations, and infrastructure, such as water supply and sewerage. The council is made up of 15 councillors and the mayor. Councillors are elected to represent wards (areas in the city). Three councillors will be elected from the Pukehīnau/Lambton ward. 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 Wellington City Council election.

Why I'm standing

Our wonderful city is facing challenges and I want to take action so my kids have a good future here. My priorities focus on what a city council can do in the next three years to address our big issues.

My priorities
  1. Support better climate friendly transport with rapid mode shift based on our transport strengths.
  2. Develop more and varied green spaces.
  3. Provide quality affordable accessible housing.
About me

I've been working in the community for constructive change in many groups and know the issues that face us with some clear ideas on how to improve them. I've got the experience and skills to find a collaborative way to make the changes we need. I strongly support a more just and equitable society, we are better together.
