Fresh Perspective, New Generation: Sam is standing to connect young people with the wider community. Sam, currently at Canterbury University, will improve relationships by supporting community groups that focus on safety and security, and build volunteer networks that benefit our families and elderly.
Being on a tight budget Sam understands the financial pressures placed on many residents. “I believe in careful spending of ratepayers’ money; core services such as roads, rubbish, and water must come first.”
Third year Law and Politics major, Sam has already demonstrated community leadership. He was heavily involved in the revival of the Musical Theatre Society, the creation of the University Performing Arts Association and has organised two inter-university exchanges.
As well as having strong practical skills from farming experience, Sam is an active volunteer, a local primary school tutor, and conducts an adult choir. Enthusiastic and approachable.
