Paekawakawa/Southern General Ward
Principal place of residence:
Not Within the Paekawakawa/Southern General Ward area
I am standing for Council because I want to give back to the city that has given me and my family so much.
I arrived in New Zealand fourteen years ago from Ethiopia and worked in low paid jobs to support my young family while I put myself through Victoria University, where I gained a Masters degree in International Relations.
I now run a small business with my wife and am Chair of the African Community Council based in Newtown, where I helped run Covid-19 vaccination drives and founded the AMAN Centre off Riddiford Street.
My priorities are investment in affordable housing, public transport and water infrastructure, as well as real action on climate change.
Community is what really drives me, so I will work to reduce cost barriers so that all children are able to play sport or take swimming lessons.

Ka tū au hei kaitono Kaunihera kia whakahoki manaaki ki Pōneke mō tā rātou i a mātou ko taku whānau.
Nō Etiopia ahau. I tae mai au ki kōnei i te tau 2008, ā, i mahi ana au i ngā mahi utu iti, ka ako hoki au kei ki Te Herenga Waka.
He kaipākihi ahau ināianei kei Newtown. He nui āku mahi ki rēira: te mahi kano ārai mate Kowheori-19, te whare AMAN hoki, te Kaunihera Hapori o Awherika hoki.
Ko ngā mea kaupapa nui ki au: ko ngā whare utu pai, ngā waka tūmatanui, ngā wai e toru, ā, tae noa ki te hurihanga āhuarangi.
Ko te hapori te mea nui kei taku ngākau. Ka pukumahi ai ki te whakaheke i ngā wero utu kia wātea ngā tāmariki katoa ki te tākaro hākinakina, ko te ako ki te kaukau hoki.
Pōti 1 mō Nureddin Abdurahman
