My principal place of residence is in the Ngā Tapuae o Matangi Māori Ward area.

Kei akū nui, kei akū rāhi, ka mihi. As a Māori ward councillor, I will endeavour to uphold the Mana Motuhake of Ngā Tapuae o Matangi, towards enacting the roles, responsibilities, and principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. My professional career pathways and opportunities have changed throughout the years. I believe that leading change will enhance and strengthen my identity and cultural responsiveness as Māori. I will ensure perspectives and aspirations of whānau, hapu, and iwi are inclusive in regional and local decision-making for future growth and development from a Te Ao Māori point of view for the mana whenua of the Manawatū.

I believe in leading change within our diverse cultures of localised kawa and tikanga, by way of normalising and establishing ethical positive relationships that are caring, inclusive, and non-discriminatory. Kāhore taku toa I te toa takitahi, he toa takitini.

Ngā mihi.
