My principal place of residence is in the Wharangi/Onslow-Western Ward area.
Kia ora tatou. I'm Richard.
Your support for me will bring new thinking to Council and an energetic, strong and experienced voice for the West.
My priorities are clear. I want vibrant, attractive community and suburban centres. Fresh water that is treasured and protected. Get serious about future-proofing waste, water & energy systems. And we absolutely need a working transport system for all.
I live in Karori, run a tree business in the western suburbs and Makara and work at the National Library of New Zealand as an educator. I'm a civil celebrant and parent of two college kids. As a lifelong conservationist I'm thrilled to see to the native birds back in town. But unreliable buses, lack of housing, decaying infrastructure and declining freshwater quality are letting us down. I'll bring renewed focus to these issues and more.
Vote Richard McIntosh 1 for new thinking out west.
