Have been involved and worked with Council Staff and Council for over 30 years and have a good understanding of local government. I have chaired Council funded committees and currently am chair of a Trust whose project is to return heritage cable cars to Dunedin as a Tourist attraction and public transport. I am a team person and like a challenge and work to achieve results. I am an independent candidate and if elected, will enter council without baggage but full of enthusiasm and commitment for the task ahead. I am not afraid to speak up and question where necessary.
