Wellington needs active and attentive leadership. i live in island bay and i’m proud to call wellington my home and have enjoyed serving my community in both voluntary and professional capacities.

I have been a chartered accountant in public practice for 30 years, serving small and medium sized businesses.  During that time, I have also been actively involved in the community. I have served on and chaired a number of community and church organizations, including as secretary/treasurer/auditor/ or trustee of many.

I usually commute to work on public transport, and am not pleased with the new service. The present Greater Wellington Regional Council appear to have been “asleep at the wheel” on this issue.

Let’s Get Wellington Moving Again will involve billions of dollars of public money. I am keen that the public get full value for money.

I am now a consultant to my firm, so I am keen to continue to serve the community. I believe that with my professional training, business experience, and years of community service, I have much to offer as a member of the Greater Wellington Regional Council.

We need a Regional Council that listens to our community and delivers on its promises. To add my practical skills and community focused approach to the Regional Council I need your vote and support to really get Wellington Moving again.
