I'm a sitting Eden Albert board member, living in Mt Albert for 23 years. Married for 26 years with 2 children, in work and life, I'm a person who gets things done. Talk is cheap, action counts. Working in sales I'm in our communities daily, seeing what needs to be done. I'm proud of our local communities and all they offer, however I don't believe we get the focus we deserve from politically driven representatives. We need strong, safe, caring, family focused communities. We need cared for and clean graffiti free streets, better facilities in and around our parks and reserves. Our villages need help to bring their heart's back, security and petty crime need addressing and spending needs good controls. I will commit 100% to this important role and be accessible to all. Strong communities make a strong proud city. Vote Focus Local and we'll make your community count.
