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.
