Kia ora,

I love serving our community and am excited to continue to lead as our Mayor.

My wife Liz and I live in Darfield with our 2 year old daughter Elliott.

Selwyn continues to grow and develop, as does our communities expectations on council.

Our growing diversity and perspectives can help ensure we honour our heritage, remain focused on meeting the needs of today and plan wisely for our future.

Council governs $1.6 billion of assets and has income of $140 million. This requires us to choose a Council with a broad range of skills.

In my first 3 years, on top of councils usual work, we have made major investments in community infrastructure, completed earthquake works, and overhauled our consultation process to focus on meeting with you to talk on the street rather than speaking in meetings at you.

I appreciate your continued support this election.


Tënä koutou

Kaingäkau nui ana au, ka mutu e hïkaka tonu ana au ki te tü anö hei Mea. Noho tahi mätou ko täku makau ko tä täua tamähine, a Elliot ki Whenuakura. Kei te whakaahutia tonutia a Waikirikiri i tënei wä, përä hoki me ngä hiahia o tehäpori.

My principal place of residence is in the Selwyn District Council area.

I am also standing for Malvern Ward and Tawera Subdivision of the Malvern Community Board.

For the last twenty years I have stood as an alternative to the present Council promoting Council decisions should benefit all residents. Listening and communication ensures decisions that benefit the most possible numbers. Unlike what is happening today where all the emphasis of Council focus is towards the more populous areas and ignoring the less populated parts of the District.

Although unsuccessful in being elected I have never abandoned Selwyn people in need, unlike some successful candidates and have continued to successfully fight injustices imposed by Selwyn Council.

I have a record second to none for pursuing the needs of anyone who has reached a point of despair due to elected representatives failing or not willing to help.

There is a great deal to do, I have successfully done it before, too many to mention here.

I pledge with your help, dedication to put right the injustices of Selwyn Council.
