Parks and play­grounds are im­por­tant in our com­mu­nity. My in­ter­est in out­door ac­tiv­i­ties has seen my in­volve­ment in them.

It has given me great sat­is­fac­tion to be in­volved with the de­vel­op­ment of the BMX track at Swap Park and also the com­bin­ing of the Mata­mata Gun and Fish­ing Club. It was to their ad­van­tage to im­prove and share the same build­ing. I’m sup­port­ing Mata­mata Swifts club in their en­deav­our to utilise Swap Park as a fu­ture venue.

I’m very aware of pub­lic money be­ing spent care­fully and with all age groups in mind.

My other in­ter­est and com­mit­ment is to make the best use of our most pre­cious com­mod­ity, our wa­ter sup­ply. Con­ser­va­tion and stor­age of wa­ter at home and in the coun­cil’s fa­cil­i­ties needs to be care­fully mon­i­tored.

To use treated wa­ter to wa­ter the gar­den and wash our cars is a lux­ury we can ill af­ford. My plan as a mem­ber of your coun­cil is to help change the way we source and store wa­ter for not only our­selves but for the gen­er­a­tions to come.

I would like to con­tinue as a mem­ber of our dis­trict coun­cil to en­sure fair and rea­son­able spend­ing in these testing times.
