City Vision presents a great lineup of candidates for the 2022 elections for the Ōwairaka subdivision of the Albert-Eden Local Board. Liv Roe stands with current members, Christina Robertson, Julia Maskill and Margi Watson (Chair).

Julia Maskill
Kia ora. I’m keen for a second term of listening to residents and helping Albert-Eden become more beautiful, caring and well-functioning. I’ve brought up my three daughters in Ōwairaka for over 35 years, and I’ve worked as a commercial lawyer, educator and climate action researcher. I love the community, and I’ve worked on communications and social change programmes. I’ve volunteered in sports and youth groups and on performing arts, disability, school and community law centre governance boards.

Christina Robertson
I’m a long-time Albert-Eden local with a background in research, teaching and transport advocacy. In my first term on the board, I’ve worked for greener, safer transport, climate action and thriving communities and town centres. I’m looking forward to running for another term so I can keep advocating for a fairer, more sustainable Auckland and supporting our communities as we shape our city’s future together.

Margi Watson
I’m a Waterview resident with a nursing background, and I’m passionate about community and the environment.  I love our area and look forward to designing and building our future together.  I’ve had extensive governance experience at a local and regional level, from school boards to Council to government appointments at Auckland Light Rail and Northern Health Schools. I’m currently the chairperson of the Albert-Eden Local Board.

Liv Roe
Kia ora. Liv here, a local and first-time candidate for the Albert-Eden Local Board. I’m a young professional, Millennial city girl working as an advocate in the not-for-profit sector with a focus on human rights, gender and LGBTQI+ equity, ethnic/migrant communities, Te Ao Māori and honouring Te Tiriti. I’m also studying towards a Graduate Diploma of Arts in Political Science. I’m excited to run for this year’s elections to hear our grassroots community voices.

They join Julie Fairey and Red Tsounga, who are standing as candidates for Albert-Eden-Puketāpapa Ward Councillors.
