Don Thwaites - Mayor Western Bay of Plenty
My vision is for a productive and innovative region, supporting and enhancing well serviced lifestyle opportunities for residents.
Aged 54, I have served seven years on the WBOP council, the last 3 as chairman of the operations committee, during this time on council I have advocated strongly for roading investment from central funders (NZTA).
Resident of Te Puna, Married to Caroline, we have three adult children. I graduated from Massey with a BBS (accounting & finance).
You now have the choice to select the team of 12 “decision and policy makers” to represent WBOP over the next 3 years. I seek your support to lead your new team of 11 councillors.
I am passionate for enhancing the entire Western Bay of Plenty region and seek to return regular council committee meetings to Te Puke & Katikati.
