My principal place of residence is in the New Plymouth District Council area.

I am also standing for the Kaitake-Ngāmotu General Ward.

I've proudly earnt the reputation of saying what needs to be said.

Being a financial adviser for over 22 years, as well as your elected council representative for nine years, has made me very aware that many families in our district are struggling with the rising cost of living. The reality is that our current rate rises are not sustainable. This needs to be urgently addressed for the sake of all future ratepayers. This will be my main focus if I become Mayor. A change in leadership is needed now to regain control over excessive council spending and rate rises.

And its important to know that I am a pragmatic person who takes an innovative approach to come up with ideas that can really make a difference in our community.
