Wellington City Council

Wharangi/Onslow-Western 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 Wharangi/Onslow-Western 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

I'm concerned that Wellington is heading in the wrong direction and needs to reduce the cost of living here and to focus on making it safe to walk anywhere, especially in the CBD and public facilities. Council needs to focus on the infrastructure and giving good value for rates. Too much emphasis has been on focus groups and not on the majority of Wellingtonians.

My priorities
  1. Stopping the irresponsible waste of money that council continues to spend and getting poor value.
  2. Focusing on repairing the infrastructure before any other projects.
  3. Capping the growth of council staff in areas that aren't for the benefit of all Wellingtonians.
About me

Five years ago, four of us established the Onslow Resident Community Association because we considered council wasn't listening to any of us or concerned about what the local issues were. I've been active in representing our residents in submissions to council and active in community activities. I don't believe there should be any party politics in council as councillors should be there to help Wellingtonians, not push a party ideology or agenda.
