My principal place of residence is in the Waitara Community Board area. I was born in Waitara and grew up at Uruti. I lived in Waitara before moving overseas and returned with my family in 2005 and have lived in Waitara ever since. It has been a privilege to serve on the Waitara Community Board for 3 terms, this last term as chairman. Waitara is a great place and I am passionate about seeing it continue to grow and develop and that is why I am seeking re-election. A lot has been accomplished during the term, including the completion of the Marine Park to West Quay Walkway and the passing of the Waitara Leasehold Bill. There's still more to be done to make Waitara a more attractive and vibrant community. The Waitara to Bell Block coastal walkway and Waitara East and West Water Catchment plans are two projects that, if re-elected, I look forward to seeing completed this coming term.

My principal place of residence is in the Waitara Community Board area. I am also standing for New Plymouth City Ward. I have just completed my first term on the Waitara Community Board and I am looking to returning for a second term. As part of my role on the community board it was a privilege to chair the consultation process for the NPDC's 30-year plan for Waitara and is now on the council's website. This plan is broken down with key objectives for Waitara into the 10-year plan. I would like to follow through with this plan and see some of these short to medium term goals achieved. Nothing of the Council is delivered quickly, but needs determined people to see the goals of Waitara completed by holding on to these tabling them every meeting with the Council. We need our infrastructure, storm water, water and roading in the attention of Council. These are urgent and critical for our community. I believe I am the person to deal with these.
