I have experience and achievements on the Auckland Council and in Parliament in strategic thinking, problem solving and community development. For every proposal I ask: is it principled? Would it be cost effective? Is it in tune with residents’ views and interests?
I have lived in Herne Bay and Parnell and am moving into a new apartment in Lion Place, Newmarket, later this year. I am on Council’s Seniors Advisory Panel and have been Deputy-Chair of the Ponsonby-Herne Bay Community Committee, on Council’s CBD Advisory Board, and a lecturer in Political Studies and in Planning at Auckland University. I chair the Problem Gambling Foundation, the Auckland Community Housing Trust and the Inner City Network, which makes me very aware of the major issues facing apartment dwellers, students, social service providers, businesses and arts organisations.
For an effective, progressive, action-focused Local Board vote for me and the City Vision team.
