Gordon Brown

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

I believe the council is at a crossroad. The very future of local goverment is under siege and we must fight to retain our independance. I oppose Three Waters reform. NPDC must retain its assets.

I believe budgets can be cut and rates increases reduced as a result.

That is why I am standing this term. We need experience, knowledge and tenacity around the council table representing New Plymouth's communities.

I believe in values of integrity, honesty and effective communication with our ratepayers and residents.

New Plymouth is a great place to live but needs to be a sustainable, affordable lifestyle community.

We need a vibrant business community to keep our economy doing well as we face the challenges of today and tomorrow.
