My young family and I love living in Matamata, and I want to ensure that the future of such a great district is a prosperous one, in which the community and the feeling of community grows.
Educated locally and at Victoria University, I am now 36 years old and married with one child.
Work and travel have taken me around the country and world, giving me a wide variety of experiences before I chose to settle back in Matamata in 2005.
I am standing for council in the Matamata ward because I feel there has in the past been a lack of representation for work- ing people, and that the make up of the council could better reflect the community it represents if there was a wider range of age groups in its make up.
The Matamata district has a proud and strong history as a dynamic and vibrant community.
I believe there needs to be a young, strong voice on Council, with fresh ideas to unashamedly promote the interests of the district to ensure this continues.
I am for common sense in local government.
I am for strong businesses, workforce, and families to ensure the districts future prosperity both economically and socially.
