Born, educated and worked most of my life in Hawera. I'm married to Cristina and our two sons attend St Josephs's and Hawera High Schools. I am passionate about our wonderful district and the potential it holds for all our families futures.
I am proud of the direction of our District over my last 2 terms on Council, with huge upgrading of infrastructure such as sewerage and new water supply for future growth, but would like to see greater efficiencies to keep future rate rises to a minimum. I have a business background and believe business friendly policies along with a pro−family environment hold the future of our great district. I believe Council must fight hard to retain essential services in our town, such as the hospital, and although we have had success here, we must remain vigilant and I will fight hard on your behalf to retain these services.
