Candidate statement

I'm a lifelong Wellingtonian. I've lived with my family in Berhampore for 23 years.

I've created a business, pioneering ethical fashion in Aotearoa. I've worked to improve Wellington businesses' environmental and social impact.

Some Council achievements since 2019: supported closer partnerships with mana whenua; helped more housing builds close to the city; priortised low carbon transport options; championed a waste free Wellington.

I'm committed to Wellington being a world-leading city that has thriving people and nature and is fair for everyone. My priorities: Enhance Wellington's unique reputation as an innovative, creative, diverse capital - nestled in nature. Create a city our young want to inherit, with low carbon transport options, quality affordable homes, meaningful jobs, waste free systems, where it's fair and inclusive of everyone with nature thriving. Work in partnership with mana whenua so Wellington upholds Aotearoa's Te Tiriti promises, ensures everyone thrives and te ao Māori is embraced/celebrated.
