My principal place of residence is in the Waitakere
Licensing Trust area. It’s time for change. The Trust needs to reconnect with
the community.  Meet the supermarket competition head on.
Self-employed engineer; Proven track record serving the
local community for in excess of 30 years; Currently serving Chair for
Ministry of Social Services West Auckland Community Response Forum since 2010; Current Auckland Social Policy Forum Member; Waitakere CityCouncillor 2007-2010; Past President of Oratia Resident and RatepayersAssociation; Served on committees of other landowner environment groups; Life Member of New Zealand Hot Rod Association.

I commit to: Competitive pricing; Future grants that make positive
differences in the community; Develop business opportunities in rural
areas of Waitakere.
As a Trustee I would expect strong policies in regards to host
responsibilities, gambling, and the sale of alcohol and anti-violence.
I admire the work the Trust undertakes and would consider it a privilege
to be a part of the organisation.
