I live in the area I am seeking to represent

Kia ora, I am Whanganui born and bred 55 years young and highly motivated to lift our city out of the doldrums. I am a third generation second hand dealer in a 99 year old business, a musician, motorcyclist and faltering sports person. I have wide experience in many areas, have lived overseas in younger days, and will bring a youthful but commonsense approach to Council. There are huge financial issues facing us that must be addressed, and earthquake strengthening demands from central government which will hurt our ratepayers far more than other cities. I will try to curb costs with a reduce, reuse, recycle and reinvigourate mantra. I work at the coalface when it comes to the poor and elderly and the young and unemployed. Give me a chance and I will do my best to improve our lot in this beautiful town.
