My principal place of residence is in the Wairau-Awatere Ward area.
Clr Geoff Evans alongside wife Liz, is a high country family farmer in the upper Waihopai Valley.
I am seeking re-election to build on opportunities already gained for our land users and small towns. Looking ahead, resourceful Marlborough has a great future based on rural/urban business and community partnerships.
I established the Rural Advisory Group to draw people together and improve communication within the Wairau-Awatere Ward and with Council.
RAG, with support from Council staff and input from ward groups, is working on the Environment Plan, broadband/cell phone access, waste solutions and pest management.
My experience on Council has been active: contributing to all major committees and sitting on the Water Allocation Working Group, Assets and Services, Regional Policy and Development, Wood Sector Group, Regional Transport Committee and the Flaxbourne irrigation governance group.
I ask your hard questions, without fear or favour, and expect answers.
EVANS, Geoff - Wairau-Awatere Ward
