From the 22nd of August to the 13th of September voting will be open for the Councilor for Howick ward of Auckland Council on the governing body.
With business and governance experience, combined with strong community connections, I have an unrivaled mix of what's needed to be your councillor.
Auckland Council is making an unprecedented investment in the rest of Auckland and I'll ensure East Auckland is no longer left behind. I will demand an honest and accountable council, challenge reckless spending and battle to protect our neighborhoods and heritage and put the people of East Auckland first.
I'll make sure we get our fair share of funding; fast-track the Eastern Busway, arrest shoddy park maintenance, put the handbrake on rates increases, protect our parks from sell-offs, transform public transport and make every beach swimmable.
With your support, I will provide the vision and leadership to tackle the tough issues, put in the hard work and ensure the people of East Auckland are heard at the council table.
If elected, these will be the key priorities for me as a Councillor.
