Local builder for 43 years; widower with 3 children all working overseas; I have always been interested in Politics and first stood for local council and ARA at the age of 24 but unfortunately family demands took precedence; Now more mature, wiser and am able to serve the community at this time of change. It would be a privilege to serve the people of Warkworth Subdivision. In a time of radical change in local body politics (undemocratically forced on us) where responsibility between Local boards and the Governing body has yet to be finalized, there is a need for a visionary, practical and strong voice for the protection of the local way of life. As a representative of Rodney I want to ensure that we get value for our rating contribution and have input into the processes of local governance. A Time Of Change − Vote For Jim Visser.
