After serving two terms as Deputy Chair of the Waitematā Local Board I was elected Chair for the 2016-19 term in October 2016. I’m proud to be part of an an effective, progressive, action-focused City Vision team on the Board.  We are working towards a fair, sustainable, vibrant and connected city for everyone to enjoy. The upgrade of community facilities and playgrounds, support for the arts and events, smokefree, safer streets, walking and cycling opportunities, quality urban design, local economic development initiatives,  care for the environment and action on homelessness are all priorities.  The City Vision-led board has a strong track record of careful financial management, delivering on our promises and getting stuff done.

I am committed to working full time for the heart of our city and Auckland’s central suburbs.

My blog is where I put my monthly reports, speeches and updates about issues relevant to my activities as Chair and my portfolios of environment and transport.

My approach is collaborative, inclusive and open.  I maintain a full declaration of interests here and report monthly on my activities.  Please get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss.
