ETHEREDGE, Laurence - Marlborough Sounds Ward

Laurence Etheredge.My principal place of residence is in the Marlborough Sounds Ward area.

As one of three councillors representing the people of the Marlborough Sounds, I will attend faithfully to the interests of Sounds residents and land owners by consulting widely and applying myself industriously to the issues that concern them most. I have served as chairman of the French Pass Residents for the past eight years, during which time I have successfully engaged with members of the community holding divergent views on a range of issues, seeking always to find common ground with reason and patience.

My life experience includes working with children at risk, establishing a vineyard and winery, building the traditional sailing vessel, Steadfast, with which I operate an educational and tourist charter business out of Picton, and assisting in the management of the French Pass DOC campground.

Key issues: finding the right balance between commercial, recreational, and conservation interests in the Sounds, and continuing to invest in Picton.

Ka haere ahau i te pono ki nga ngākau nuitanga o Sounds noho me rangatira whenua mā te kōrero whānui, me te tono ahau itoito ki nga take e arohia ana. Kua mahi ahau rite tiamana o Te Aumiti kainoho mo te waru tau e mua, i roto i nei te wa i pai rawe ahau ki te mau melo o te hapori e pupuri whakaaro weherua i runga i te whānuitanga o ngā take, e whai ana i nga wa katoa ki te kitea whenua noa ki te take.

Wheako toku ora kau mahi ki ngā tamariki i mōrea, te whakatū i te mara waina, me te whare waina, hanga i te oko rere tuku iho, Tu'uma'u, me i whakahaere ahau i te mahi tūtohinga mātauranga me te tāpoi i roto o Waitohi, a āwhina i roto i te whakahaere o te puninga Te Aumiti mō Te Papa Atawhai.
