Candidate statement

I’m Wellington’s ice cream guy – I founded Kaffee Eis 19 years ago, and it’s now a well-loved business supplying gelato nationwide and employing over 25 people.

I am deeply committed to Wellington, where I was born, raised, educated, and now run a business with three branches in the central city – over summer we make a tonne of gelato a day.

Running my own business means I understand it’s essential to spend money wisely, and make logical and affordable decisions. Wellington has some huge and expensive challenges, and I will fight on behalf of renters and owners for Council decisions to be sensible, cost-effective, and aimed at the things that will take our city forward.

As an independent I’ll be free to work with all councillors in the best interests of Wellington. 

I want Council to focus on managing infrastructure, restoring vibrancy to the city, and (importantly) spending our rates prudently.
