My principal place of residence is in the Nelson City Council area.
I love Nelson, home to my family for 35 years. But in the three years I've represented you on Council, I've realised we can and must do better. It is unacceptable to have high rates rises while
Council struggles to deliver projects on time or within budget. We need strong leadership to get the Council team working together for you and our growing region. I have the skills and experience needed.
For 20 years I owned a local company providing financial advice to families and businesses, and chaired their NZ Board. I was a Rata Foundation Director for eight years, established Warmer Healthier Homes Nelson/Tasman (insulating 1,500 homes), and helped re-home Nelson Netball to Saxton Field. I've coached the Nelson Giants and many local basketballers.
I understand business, the community and our environmental challenges.
I seek the privilege of working as your Mayor. I would appreciate your vote
