I am a committed member of the Winton community, and have been involved in Central Western Cricket and Limehills Indoor Bowls Club. I have played rugby and cricket for Southland at provincial level, and care passionately about our province.
To contribute I am seeking your vote for the community board. I want to help our community grow, and work to help make Winton a place where people feel they have a future. We can’t have all our young people moving to the cities.
Spending other peoples money is something I am not comfortable with, and I believe ratepayers are best with money in their own pockets. I will not be advocating massive spending and I will be working to keep rates low.
As a Community Board Member I want to be known for always having time to talk to people, discuss their issues, and help solve their problems
Top 5 Issues
- Keeping Money In Pockets!!
The best way to do this is by cutting out the unnessessary spending that doesnt help growth or infrustructure. For Example a contract for lawn mowing at sports fields 3 times a week and it getting done once is unnessessary spending.
- Making Winton a place where young people to want to stay.
The age range of 18-35 makes up only 20% of the population of Winton. That number alone is the same percentage as the 65-75 age range.
I Commend the Current Board on their achievements especially in relation to the new sport courts, I feel I could bring some more fresh ideas to this.
- Listening to the people.
It is important that the board listens to the community it is the face of, to get ideas from the community I have set up and account for people to email me through ideas and views so I get a better understanding of what Winton want.
That email address is email@example.com
- The most important for residents of any town of course is rates.
I will be doing my best to keep rate rises at a minimum by eliminating the unnessessary spending.
Born and Raised in Southland. I attended Central Southland College, where I got NCEA level 3 and University Entrance and graduated in 2006.
After leaving High School I studied Bachelor of Teaching(Primary) through Otago University. After 3 years I decided to return to the career that has endless opportunities. Dairy Farming.
Working on a farm milking 850 cows in Dunearn heading towards a goal of farm ownership which seems a hard task in today’s society. I have a goal in seeing our country become a brighter place for all people to live in and in some cases return too.
I enjoy sports in which I have played Rugby and Cricket for Southland at a provincial level, I have also started playing indoor bowls for Limehills as it is a great way to get amongst great people who also have a strong passion for the community.
I am the youngest candidate running for the board but I do so as I have a passion for my community and I believe I am in a good position to give back for the long term!
