I have served the people of Mt Albert for 15 years, as Local Board Deputy Chair and Auckland City Councillor. I am a member of the Mt Albert Aquatic Centre Trust, with experience on Balmoral School Board of Trustees and Auckland Business Development Council. I have lived in Mt Albert for over 30 years with my husband raising our 4 children. I am committed to making Mt Albert’s voice heard and calling Council to account.
I am a member of the Tupuna Maunga Authority which cares for Owairaka, Maungawhau and Mt St John, and relish the opportunity to work to make our maunga better for our communities.
Mt Albert, Sandringham, WesternSprings, Pt Chev, Waterview, Morningside and Owairaka are all residential neighbourhoods that stand to undergo much change in the next three years as the Unitary Plan enables new development. Our infrastructure is bursting at the seems and needs serious investment for us to welcome our new communities. I will be actively working with my City Vision team to ensure public transport and wastewater systems are given priority.
Our unique residential neighbourhoods and character shopping centres must allow for sensible urban renewal with well-designed new homes, whilst retaining their character. Good reliable cheap public transport is the key. Affordable housing is a challenge we must grasp. Keeping our assets are a bottom line.
I believe in social justice and the power of communities.
