My principal place of residence is not in the Feilding General Ward area.
My last 6 years as Deputy Mayor have been a privilege. I chair the Economic Development and District Planning Focus Groups and the Chief Executive's Employment Committee. I have taken a lead role with earthquake prone buildings with recent strengthening success. I serve on the Joint PN Strategic Planning Committee, Mana Whakahaere (Oroua River Governance), Infrastructure Focus Group, Kiwitea and Colyton Community Committees and the national Oversight Committee of 31 councils opposed to the Government's three waters reform model. I offer a strong voice for business, our local community and managed economic growth. I chaired Feilding Promotion for over 20 years until 2016, driving revitalisation and business and population growth. I live at Colyton and have my own Feilding boutique Real Estate Agency and have 44 years' property experience including as a Registered Valuer. This Council is functional, progressing well with infrastructure provision and projects that stimulate growth and prosperity.
