With the help of my Christchurch 2021 colleagues, I’m seeking re-election to the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board. I’ve been an active member of this board since 1989, including 9 years as its chairman. I’m a lawyer in private practice, 60, and a former City Councillor. I’ve lived in the area for 35 years, am committed to it, and understand local issues and needs.

My main goals are protecting and enhancing our neighbourhoods, the Port Hills and the Heathcote River environment. I listen to the community, I want improved citizen participation in council decision-making and I want to influence the Council to focus its attention on relevant current issues in our community. I want better matching of services to residents’ wants, needs and willingness to pay, and good value for your rates dollar.

I want to keep working to ensure Christchurch remains the place you want to live. I believe people come first and experience counts.
