Candidate statement

As Deputy Mayor, I've worked constructively with others through difficult times.

Despite challenges, we're delivering an unprecedented programme to fix broken pipes and important buildings, upgrade community facilities, and find transport and housing solutions as our city grows.

My priorities remain:

Transport: new tunnel and bus lanes for efficient bus and car journeys for the East; safer walking/cycling connections; greener suburban streets.

Resilience: Fixing the pipes. Seawalls and other solutions to respond to climate change; warm, dry housing; sensible earthquake strengthening; pest-predator free initiatives; sludge treatment to reduce waste to landfill.

Community: supporting local businesses and communities; activities for all ages; a safe and vibrant CBD.

I'm known as an experienced, capable councillor who listens. As an Independent, I will make practical, pragmatic decisions to best serve our ward and the entire city.

I have an engineering degree and Masters in Public Health. Please support me with your first preference.
