Hi everyone, I am pleased to announce that I am standing in the upcoming Local Body Elections, representing the Hamilton Constituency for Waikato Regional Council.

The Waikato region is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It’s important that growth is well-planned and sustainable, with the health of our environment at its core.

I am committed to prudent financial management, ensuring smart investment in infrastructure, and providing core services cost-effectively.

We must ensure our transport network is balanced, efficient and accessible, providing a diverse range of options.

Water is an essential resource, requiring protection for future generations; the health of our waterways is an important component of this.

It’s important we value healthy air and soils, biosecurity and ecological restoration.

Environmental education develops the ability to think and act sustainably. I have been an active supporter of the Enviroschools programme over many years.

I represent hard work, integrity and loyalty, and am proud to be a part of a growing, vibrant region with a key role to play in New Zealand’s future.
