Chris Lee

My principal place of residence is in the Kaitake-Ngāmotu General Ward area.

Mauri ora. Moving to Ngāmotu/New Plymouth in 1975, I have perspective of its transformation from a provincial town into one of the world's 'most liveable' cities. With great schools, sport clubs and cultural history, New Plymouth has been a wonderful place to raise our four children. My life has gravitated toward hauora, service, community building, teamwork, reconciliation and discovery of better ways to live.

My professional background includes 11 years work in Taranaki Base Hospital's Medical Laboratory, 12 years teaching health science/computing at Taranaki Polytechnic and over 20 years leadership in CityLife Church and the wider Christian community. Relationships formed through our Te Ao/Te Reo Māori journey have enriched our world view. Current involvements include completing post graduate study, Police and sport chaplaincy, landscaping and occasional babysitting gigs with our grandchildren. I am approachable, attentive, motivated by a genuine love for people and will represent our district with integrity.
