Tena Koutou Katoa. I have returned to the beautiful Ngaruawahia township and work at Waikato District Council as a Resource Consent Planner. In the early 90's, I lived in Ngaruawahia while my father worked as a programme facilitator with the Ngaruawahia Salvation Army. I am happily married to my wife Amy, and we have two beautiful children, Millie and Roden. I am on the Board of Trustees for the Ngaruawahia High School, and am the Chairperson for the NRSC Junior Netball Committee. I believe there are endless opportunities in Ngaruawahia that have not been promoted and considered. I am able and well equipped to lead and represent Ngaruawahia, encouraging the quality of life that we all seek and believe is achievable in this beautiful town. I will be proud to represent Ngaruawahia.
