My principal place of residence is not in the Pukehīnau/Lambton Ward area.
I've been privileged to represent the Lambton Ward on council for the past three years. Having lived and rented in the ward, I know the challenges facing us, especially around housing. As a councillor I've worked hard to find realistic solutions to those challenges, address issues around homelessness and begging in our streets, introduce a Living Wage for council staff and contractors and ensure we are creating a safe, resilient and liveable place for all who call Wellington home.
There's more work to do. I've spent most of my life working with groups and organisations that want to make a positive change in their communities and I believe these are still the skills and experiences we need around the council table. I look forward to continuing the work we've started and doing even more to make this the best little city in the world.
