Tena koutou katoa,
I am proud to have been your Mayor for the last six years. There is still much that can be done to enhance and make our community the attractive and positive district we deserve. I have a proven record of listening, caring and doing to meet our community’s needs. I have enjoyed serving and leading this community and learning more about what an amazing district we have. There is a buzz of success and excitement for what is on the horizon.
