I live in the area I am seeking to represent

My name is Miriama Postlethwaite and I reside in Kawerau. I attended North School, Kawerau Intermediate and Kawerau College. I left Kawerau to attend University completing a Bachelors, Masters in Education and am currently completing my Doctorate. After a long career in education, I have returned home with the intention of serving the community that helped raise me.

If elected, I would like to stand on a platform to entice business to set up in Kawerau and the surrounding district. I believe that the Kawerau Council could get more job opportunities to Kawerau by promoting industries such as aquaculture and adding value to food manufacturing. We have good soil and clean water; vital ingredients as the world looks to New Zealand as a safe food source. More job opportunities will have a positive flow on effect in helping combat some of the identified issues facing this community.

How can we make Kawerau a safer more peaceful place?
Kia ora,

Miriama Postlethwaite here. As a candidate standing, I would hope that the plan to stop acts of violence will involve a collaborative approach between Council, Schools, Police, the Services and the community.
