My principal place of residence is not in the Lakes-Murchison Ward area.
After farming all my life and raising our four children in Tapawera, my wife and I recently shifted to Spring Grove, however, we continue to farm in Tapawera.
I have a proven track record as an honest and hardworking councillor, committed to ensuring the preservation of our environment and that the needs of our rural communities are being met.
My priorities are to keep rates as affordable as possible, the improvement and maintenance of rural roads, the protection and enhancement of infrastructure such as water, wastewater and stormwater services, and the preservation of local community facilities.
I want to see Council playing a key role in helping meet housing demand through the provision of housing, zoning, land development, and proactive planning while balancing the need to protect prime productive land.
I seek your support to continue providing positive, conscientious, and accessible representation.
