Phil Bowyer: Katikati - Waihi Beach Ward
I am a retired Engineer of more than 30 years’ with broad experience in Airport Development throughout the world, particularly in design and project management including managing my own company for 14 years. I can offer a sound skills base to the role of councillor.
I am a Tupuna Whanau Representative for Te Tii B3 Trust Waitangi which has involved attending regular hui over the last three years.
I am committed to addressing our escalating rates and freeze them ensuring that key structural changes are made to maintain essential services, while reducing non-essential costs.
I have been a property owner at Waihi Beach since 1984, more recently a permanent resident. I am active in the community, in particular the planting of coastal and wetland areas. I have an understanding of the area and its needs and am prepared to listen to and do my best for the constituents and their concerns.
