Tayla Willetts

My principal place of residence is in the District-Wide Councillor area.

I am Taranaki born and bred, and I love our slice of paradise. I would love to make it even better, for everyone.

My friends and family would describe me as kind, passionate and trustworthy.

Leadership is not about the leader - it is about the ability to make all voices heard. I am a representative of someone who is usually quiet, introverted, and would rather stay hidden. However, I am passionate about making information about current decisions accessible at the right times so that your voice is heard. I also like making information easy to understand.

The council is a representation of the people. It is important to include young people to encourage new ideas and perspectives on issues. I will be the one to ask 'why'.

Sometimes the solution is a simple fix.
