Matamata Chronicle - - News -

I am a fourth gen­er­a­tion Mata­mata res­i­dent. My wife Kay and I own Hur­ri­cane Com­put­ers.

Be­tween us we have 9 chil­dren and 18 grand­chil­dren, most of whom live in Mata­mata.

In 2010 I was elected to the Mata­mata Com­mu­nity Board.

In ad­di­tion to my Com­mu­nity Board re­spon­si­bil­i­ties I at­tended over 20 Coun­cil meet­ings over those three years, gain­ing valu­able back­ground in­for­ma­tion nec­es­sary to be a com­pe­tent Coun­sel­lor.

I hope to en­sure that not only will Mata­mata be a safe and en­joy­able town in which to both live and work for ALL ages of the cur­rent com­mu­nity, but will con­tinue to be so for our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

It is im­per­a­tive that all phys­i­cal in­fra­struc­tures put in place by pre­vi­ous Coun­cils have main­te­nance and im­prove­ment plans which do not dis­ad­van­tage the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of ratepay­ers or en­cum­ber fu­ture gen­er­a­tions with an ex­ces­sive debt.

My in­volve­ment with Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Clubs has seen me elected to po­si­tions in lo­cal, re­gional and na­tional man­age­ment teams.

I have no fixed agenda or per­sonal projects to ‘‘push’’ through the sys­tem. If elected it would be my in­ten­tion to con­sult with the Mata­mata cit­i­zens and to reg­is­ter my vote ac­cord­ingly on all Coun­cil decisions.
