My principal place of residence is in the Marlborough District Council area.
I am also standing for Blenheim Ward.
I have the strength and commitment as Mayor to lead a Council that respects the role we share and decisions we make, to ensure responsible governance and enduring success for Marlborough.
I grew up here, attended Bohally and Marlborough Boys’ College, and returned 30 years ago to practice law. I’m active throughout the community and passionate about our region.
Marlborough deserves a strong leader who can facilitate healthy, open and balanced debate, model exemplary governance and foster Council and Councillor engagement with our community.
Economic growth, quality of life, social infrastructure and guardianship of our environment are equally important to our region’s success. Councillors are jointly responsible for informed, balanced decision-making that centres around long-term success.
Your vote for me is your vote for a Mayor with professionalism, experience, vision, balance and integrity, with a proven track record and the capability and commitment to serve Marlborough through open, strong leadership.
