I am a Councillor because I care about you – the Upper Hutt community. Because, the community has so much untapped potential. Because this is 2022 and the world has changed. Because I have the skills and knowledge to stand up for you, the ratepayer.
I am a Mayoral candidate because its time.
A Vision For The Future
Effective And Actionable
Every member of our growing community deserves to feel safe and to be able to access the services they need. For years I have been advocating for the Upper Hutt Police Station to be reinstated. As Mayor I will continue that advocacy and work with police, central government, Māori wardens and Community Patrols to achieve the community safety Upper Hutt needs.
