Michelle Rush

Local body candidate Michelle Rush.

Standing for:
Wharangi/Onslow-Western Ward


My principal place of residence is in the Wharangi/Onslow-Western Ward area. I live in Ngaio. 

We have two teenaged daughters, one at college and one at Victoria University. I'm passionate about Wellington and its future, and I am inspired by the energy and foresight I see in our young people and want to contribute to making this city a great place to live for our future generations.
If elected I will bring fresh energy, accountability and a vision for future proofing our critical infrastructure including our pipes, roads and streetscapes to the role. I have a background in natural resource management, with a particular interest in sustainable land and water use, and sustainable urban design.
I work as a professional facilitator with companies, government organisations and not-for-profits. I specialise in collaborative processes where stakeholders from diverse backgrounds need to work together on complex issues (like water planning) and reach consensus.
I'm currently the Chair of the Onslow College Board of Trustees.
