Kura Denness

My principal place of residence is in the Waitara Community Board area.

I love living in Waitara.  I have never lived in a place that is so supportive of its residents and wants to improve its standard of living.  Waitara has a bad reputation, which is wholly undeserved.

I am standing for the Waitara Community Board because it has influence as to what happens here and can support what could happen here.  I think the Board needs some diversity in its membership in gender and multiculturalism.

I am a retired Chartered Accountant and am on the boards of WISE and Te Korimako.  I am also a Trustee on Waitara Alive and worked for the Waitara Foodbank.  Both my mother's and father's whanau are long term residents.

I whakapapa to Ngati Rahiri, Otaraua, Pukerangiora, Ngati Te White, Puketapu and Manukorihi hapu.

My skills and experience will add value and my enthusiasm will give a fresh impetus to the Board.
