My principal place of residence is in the Blenheim Ward area.
As a Councillor I stand on performance. I believe our constituents should be treated equally, listened to and valued. I am approachable and easy to talk with.
I stand up for what I believe in. I promote fairness in the tendering process and advertising of council positions. I am committed to common sense decisions, made with a focus on core council activities. I have continued to challenge council management and the status quo.
We must address the use of financial reserves, continued use of certain consultants and consultation with local Iwi. Personal achievements this term include taking Annual Plans into the Community for discussion; the establishment of the Small Township Upgrade Committee; a Christmas tree for the CBD and planning for dog parks.
My wife and four children are active and proud Marlburians.
I aim to be a Committee Chair. I ask for your vote to represent you on Council.
