My principal place of residence is in the Wharangi/Onslow-Western Ward area.
I stand for less debt and lower rates. My focus is financial discipline and transparency of financial decision making.
The Council's plans and financial statements make it clear that discretionary investments are driving unnecessarily high rates increases. The Council should focus on delivering critical infrastructure and core services.
I want rates increases restricted to the rate of growth in the average wage. If the Council wants higher increases for any reason, the choice should be put to ratepayers in the consultation on the annual plan.
My other two priorities are housing and transport. The Council must play its part in enabling housing supply. Public transport needs to be convenient, reliable, and cost effective.
I have a strong combination of financial and policy skills, and currently work in strategic financial management. I have degrees in Public Policy, Accounting, and Psychology.
