Ross Goudie: Katikati - Waihi Beach Ward
I am a “active" Dairy Farmer in Waihi Beach, and have previously served 12 years on WBOPDC as Councillor for Waihi Beach Ward
My community involvement over the last 10 years as been:
Athenree Homestead Trust, Waihi Beach Community Hall, Lions plus taking a active interest in Waihi Beach Events and Promotions and the Waihi Beach Medical Trust. It is voluntary organisations like the above that are the heart and soul of the Community.
Achievements in the last 3 yrs include:
Lowest Council net debt for 5yrs, Stormwater program of $9m for Waihi Beach, Cycleway from Waihi.
I am putting my name forward because I am further committed to:-
1. Further decreasing rates and lowering of Council debt.
2. To make cost effective decisions that are in the best long term interests of ratepayers.
3. To provide ratepayers with good information and relevant feedback for informed decisions about their future.
I have a good understanding of council processes and the financial implications which I will use on your behalf.
