I have re­ally en­joyed rep­re­sent­ing the Mor­rinsville ward for three years.

The up­grade to the Mor­rinsville pool and waste wa­ter plant has im­proved im­por­tant com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

I have en­joyed work­ing closely with the Te Miro Moun­tain Bik­ers, Mor­rinsville Skate­board­ers and the Keep Mor­rinsville Beau­ti­ful com­mit­tees, help­ing them achieve their goals for our com­mu­nity.

I have also con­tin­ued the work started pre­vi­ously as a Com­mu­nity Board mem­ber.

Pro­mot­ing a voice, ser­vices and fund­ing for our youth

Push­ing ef­fi­cien­cies and rep­re­sent­ing oth­ers’ points of view to the Coun­cil and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive. Top 5 Is­sues for a S.A.F.E.R. Dis­trict 1. SAFETY – Com­mu­nity safety is a ma­jor con­cern for those liv­ing and con­sid­er­ing a move into our dis­trict. Foot­paths and walk­ing tracks are two of my main pri­or­i­ties for the fu­ture. Traf­fic is­sues in An­zac Av­enue, Stir­ling Drive and Seales Road/Coronation Road need our at­ten­tion 2. AF­FORD­ABIL­ITY – We need to en­cour­age and pro­vide in­cen­tives to res­i­dents pre­pared to con­serve wa­ter/storm wa­ter or waste re­sult­ing in long term ben­e­fits for us all 3. FA­CIL­I­TIES – We need to con­tinue to in­crease our part­ner­ships with both in­dus­try and ser­vice clubs in help­ing achieve the Coun­cils pro­vi­sion of both im­proved in­fra­struc­ture and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties. A com­mu­nity fund­ing ad­vi­sor would be high on my list of ways to as­sist our com­mu­nity 4. EM­PLOY­MENT - The Coun­cil also has to pro­vide cer­tainty, clar­ity and timely re­sponses to those look­ing to de­velop or ex­pand in busi­ness and in­dus­try. 5. RE­SPECT – Over the last term the four Mor­rinsville Coun­cil­lors have worked well in uni­son to achieve some sig­nif­i­cant re­sults for our ward. I seek your sup­port to con­tinue achiev­ing great re­sults for our ward and dis­trict as a whole.
