16th August Why I am standing for New Plymouth District Council


Waitara and the north deserve better representation. Our area

has stagnated with District Council reps who seem to spend their

time bickering and sniping and Community Boards that only

represents a narrow sector of our community.

While my personal interests lie in sustainability across the environment and our community, I am clear that, if elected, my role is to represent the North Taranaki people and to advocate for our area. I will not push my own agendas. I want to see the maintenance of our Council assets and support for projects in our area.

I have worked extensively in the local voluntary sector over 39 years and built strong networks within groups that are often invisible or under-represented at Council level.

I offer integrity, accessibility and strong sense of fair play. I want to help people understand how Council systems work and to give them both hope and confidence that they are being listened to.

My work in recording the visual history of our district over decades through my photography has given me a good knowledge of the area and of the changes we see happening around us.
