Liz Langham

Standing for:
Tawa Community board

Statement:
My principal place of residence is in the Tawa Community Board area.

I have lived in Tawa as a child, a teenager, a commuter, a full-time parent, a volunteer and a local employee. I have lived on both sides of the valley and volunteered in many places from Linden School to Arohata Prison with Playcentre, Mana Tiaki, ‘mainly music’ and many others in between. My longstanding community involvement was acknowledged with a “Wellingtonian of the Year (Education)” award in 2013 and at the Tawa Civic Awards in 2014. My husband, John, is a local GP and together with our four children, we have a wide range of community connections. My background in social policy, social work, and community development gives me a strong framework for understanding how people and their environments shape each other which I think would be valuable as we seek to welcome more people into our community whilst maintaining and improving the characteristics of Tawa that current resident’s value.
