Candidate statement

Our wonderful city is facing challenges, both global and local. With demands on people, resources and the environment we need to act.

We need to heal from Covid19, meet our climate action targets, keep our natural ecosystems thriving, and ensure everyone has a place to call home.

The good news is Wellington's strengths. We have great public transport use and a walking culture, we have impressive parks and beaches, popular urban spaces, and well-established services. I want to take action with high value (not high cost) projects to support better climate friendly transport, more and varied green spaces, quality housing and vibrant urban areas. My work in a variety of jobs, with experience in policy, and working with and leading community groups, informs my evidence-based can-do approach.

Together let's find local solutions to address the big issues for a thriving future-proof Wellington, a better city for all of us.
