Hagley Ferrymead Community Board

Kia Ora and Greetings

I am Ngai Tahu, Scottish and Irish and proud of all my heritages. I have lived in the Hagley/Ferrymead ward for the last 20 years, and I’m married to Sala Johnson, a Samoan. I am a truly multicultural kiwi! All people are equal in my eyes…

For 38 years I have been actively involved in many community agencies in Canterbury. I have developed a strong grassroots approach, understand governance very well and have extensive community knowledge.

Current positions held:

  • Business Development Officer Pacific Island Evaluation
  • Member of Care and Protection Panel of Child Youth and Family
  • Chairperson, Wool Ladies Trust
  • Member, Mayors Welfare
  • Member, Meridian Energy Advocacy Consumer Group
  • A part time budgeter at Christchurch Budgeting Service
  • Member of the Court Advisory Board
  • Trustee of the Canterbury Community Trust
  • Lion of the New Brighton Group
  • Treasurer of the Marist Rugby League Club

As an elected representative on the Hagley/Ferrymead Board I have worked hard to ensure there has been a fair democratic process and that residents know they have been supported. I have served my local community with all my knowledge and ability. I would like to work for the ward for another 3 years with the experience I have gained in that period.

Thank You.
