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.
