EXPERIENCE & ENERGY
Hi, I'm Ken Simons.
I've lived in Napier for the best part of my life.
My 32-year career as a firefighter in this city taught me the value of community service and helping others. Many other voluntary roles within the service and other organisations taught me the benefits of co-operative decision making:
- Chairman of the NZ Fire Service Superannuation Scheme.
- Trustee of the Medical Compensation Insurance Trust Fund.
- Trustee of the NZ Firefighters Welfare Society.
- Association of Superannuation Funds of NZ councillor and Trustee of the Year.
I’ve continued my community involvement through Volunteering Hawke’s Bay - an organisation which links willing helpers with those in need.
I want to see Napier continue to flourish and progress as a popular cultural, sporting, lifestyle and heritage destination for both its residents, and our many visitors.
I believe I can make a positive contribution within the Napier City Council, and I’d like you to give me the opportunity to give something back to a community which is a wonderful place to live, work and play.
