Born in Opotiki, and now living in Bowentown, I belong to the BOP.
With 27 years of service as an RNZAF aviator, running very large projects, and managing an Aerospace Company in Europe, my skillset is deep, broad, and relevant.
As Mayor, I will ensure that the Council is:
- Innovating and delivering future prosperity, while supporting entrepreneurship.
- Leading the way forward, while making the hard decisions.
- Uniting and empowering our communities based on universally shared values.
- Protecting our environment, especially water quality, usage and availability.
- Ensuring infrastructure requirements are met.
- Engaging with central Government to reduce the costof national legislation tolocal ratepayers.
- Continuously reviewing Council processes to ensure they are delivering the correct and needed outcomes.
- Removing Council processes that are wasteful, and not delivering the community's needs.
The District needs a strong leader. I am that person.
