The Voting Papers are sent out starting this Friday. There are a large number of candidates for the Timaru Ward. I am one of those candidates. I would value the opportunity to represent you as a Councillor for the Timaru District.

Visit my web site at hughperry.co.nz to see what I am able to offer Timaru Residents, if you Vote for Hugh. I am an experienced and trusted local lawyer with over 35 years residency with my Wife Margaret In Timaru. Our 2 daughters were brought up in Timaru. I have many years of honest reliable representation of residents, as clients. I have the skills to contribute a lot around the Council table. I want to see honest and open representation.

I have the skills to be able to achieve agreement and to work with others on Council. One council member on their own cannot do anything. As a lawyer I used to working with others and solving difficult situations. Please look at my web site and see what I have to offer you. I hope that you may choose me, as one of your 6 representatives of the Timaru Ward. I will be there for you. Please vote Hugh for you.
