Since 2013, I have been privileged to serve as a local Councillor in the Ilam area. Much has been achieved in that time, but we are a long way from securing the thriving 21st century city we envisaged back in 2011. It's been 5 years since the Government’s Blueprint for Christchurch, but there is a great deal more to do to finish the job.
It’s time for a new approach.
In September, I am standing for election as the Independent Candidate for Ilam - because Christchurch needs an MP whose sole focus is on championing our city and its people.
Our city still faces significant challenges and risks. Whoever forms the next Government, my goal is to work collaboratively to build a positive future for Ilam and Christchurch and develop our role as vital contributors to the New Zealand as a whole.
In the coming weeks this site will become a place for an active discussion about a positive vision for Christchurch.
