Why I'm standing

I'm standing because folk in my community have asked me to represent them!

My priorities
  1. Shift our transport philosophy, prioritise pedestrians, cyclists and public-transport users.
  2. Walking school buses and promotion of cycling to schools – reclaim independent mobility for kids!
  3. Nest nest for nest….not in any one's backyard!
About me

I'm committed to listening and representing the views of my community. I'm going to actively seek input from different perspectives – particularly young people and those on the margins whose voices are seldom heard.
