We all deserve to live in a safe, prosperous, healthy and inclusive community with world-class infrastructure and amenities. We also need positive and sustainable economic development.
Through my strong community connections, collaborative leadership and genuine desire to do the very best for Whangarei, I can help make this happen.
I believe in building strong relationships with every sector of our community – youth, seniors, Maori, business people, wage earners, those seeking work, migrants, artists and sportspeople. I identify with you all … I listen, I care.
Under my leadership we have reduced Council debt, continued investing in essential infrastructure and further developed recreational assets we can all enjoy. We have also supported and encouraged cultural events and creativity.
As your Mayor I commit to continue building a community that is economically strong, vibrant, diverse, creative and healthy – a district with a bright future that we can all proudly call home.
