My principal place of residence is in the Tasman District Council area. I am also standing for Richmond Ward Councillor.

As an Intensive Care Paramedic and Registered Nurse, I have worked caring for people in the health sector. I am Managing Director of MediMax Ambulance Service. I will listen to concerns and encourage more ratepayer participation.
The Council must respect the opinions of the Community. The secret Council workshops, with the public excluded where decisions are formulated must be stopped. I will open these workshops for the ratepayers to attend if they wish.
We must do better.

Thank you for your support - Maxwell Clark 4 Mayor
My principal place of residence is in the Tasman District Council area.
We love living and raising our family in Tasman with our region's enviable access to the natural environment.
Economic vitality and environmental sustainability are crucial to Tasman's future. Developing our diverse economy and communities while meeting the challenges around water quality, biodiversity, an aging population and changing climate will be priorities.
Council's core role will remain investing in new and improved infrastructure, managing the regions natural resources, providing efficient and customer focused services and supporting recreational facilities and activities.
Delivering within the Council's rate and debt limits will require strong leadership and difficult decisions.
Having over twenty years of governance experience in business, community organisations and on Council, I'm committed to working collectively to tackle the challenges and capitalise on opportunities for our region.
I'm positive about the future and seek your support to continue providing practical hardworking and accessible representation as your Mayor.
My principal place of residence is in the Tasman District Council area. I am also standing for Motueka Community Board Member.
Born and bred right here in the Tasman District with my ancestry dating back to the 1800's.
Our region is changing at a rapid pace, with fast growth, housing demands, state of our current infrastructure and climate concerns, we have major challenges.
Our current solution is to meet these challenges with increased rates and increased debt levels.
We instead must utilise our community's collective knowledge and expertise and advocate harder with central government.
My success both professionally and as a volunteer on many boards and organisations throughout the region has demanded of me a high level of business acumen, the ability to negotiate significant contracts, understand local and central government complexities, and work with limited or challenging budgets.
As Mayor I will ensure, we as elected members, represent and reflect your aspirations and we must do this with the upmost of integrity and transparency.

Tasman is a terrific region, and everyone wants to live here, but increasingly only the rich can afford to and that is why you deserve better from your elected representatives.
We are the region with the second lowest GDP in the country with wages 14% below average. We need a Council with the vision to turn that around. We live in one of the most spectacular regions in the world and we cater to freedom campers not the lucrative eco-tourists.
Tasman needs housing options that are affordable. We need to stop loading future generations with financial and environmental debt. Environmentally we can do better and we need to do better.
Recent Cyclones, Fires, and droughts proved that working together is something our region is good at. Let's elect a team that can represent the whole region for a better outcome. Be a voter for the change we desperately need.
