My principal place of residence is in the Blenheim Ward area.
Raising two young children with my husband in Blenheim, we have invested in Marlborough’s future. I have the passion, energy and skills to move the region forward in a positive way. My strong values underpin my relationships and decision-making.
I stand for:
Sensible and accountable use of ratepayer funds and cash reserves, with core council activities being the priority;
A culture that enables business investment, innovation and growth;
Opportunities for our young people.
I have served 3 years in Council on Community & Finance, Environment and Hearings Committees; Youth Council and gained Resource Management Commissioner accreditation.
I also Chair the Dillons Point Playgroup, am a member of Marlborough Violence Intervention Project’s Positive Ageing workstream; and the Youth Workers Collective.
With a diverse management background, I know how important it is to have a clear vision, to listen, and work collaboratively with others to get things done. Vote back Laressa Shenfield.
