  Margaret Kouvelis   021556383

It has been a privilege as Mayor to lead an effective team for the last five years. We have a track record of delivering growth, innovation and social development, however, there is more to be done.

My collaborative leadership style will ensure we keep the focus on jobs, opportunities for youth, and building an inclusive community.

I am committed to Manawatu District continuing to thrive and grow, attracting new residents and jobs.

We are the heart of central New Zealand – I am focused on growing our economy so our children can prosper here.

Brian and I have lived for 20 years on our olive grove at Awahuri. We are parents, grandparents, active community participants, business people and former Feilding retailers.

You can trust that I will get the job done. I will work with you to build the bright future we all seek for Manawatu and our families.

Thank you.

  With a proven track record of leadership encompassing vision, energy, contacts, knowledge, credibility and a can do attitude, I have the qualities to be your Mayor.

Having driven positive change for over 20 years, in my previous role as Manager of Feilding Promotion and as a volunteer, I have an excellent understanding of how Council should operate.

I have always enjoyed a team approach, having lead from the front on many projects in the District, seeing each through to successful fruition.

Farming at Mt Biggs with my husband Neil, I have a district wide focus, am an experienced event manager, celebrant, disaster aid volunteer, Rotary Club member and lead by example as a willing volunteer for anything that is good and meaningful in the community.

I am keen to continue advocating, as your Mayor, for the Manawatu District to be the best place to live, work, shop and play.
