Candidate statement

I want Wellington to thrive again: vibrant and affordable; with core services delivered well. Please vote for me #1.

I'm a proud Wellington - born, raised and educated here. I began my career as a journalist at The Evening Post.

As an experienced, independent and, liberal councillor, Wellington - not party politics - is my focus. I've championed issues delivering value for our city; that's why I united Council to stop KiwiRail relocating its new mega-ferries into our inner harbour.

Residential rates are forecast to increase 34% in the next term. That's unaffordable on top of increases already experienced, so I've consistently opposed irresponsible borrowing and wasteful spending.

Councillors must work together to get things done, without the politics and in-fighting that make residents despair. Our priority must be upgrading the 3-waters infrastructure, challenging non- critical projects, and ending the debt-funding of operational expenditure.

Please give me your #1 vote
