My principal place of residence is in the Porirua City Council area.

I grew up in Porirua. I went to Glenview, Maraeroa, Corinna, Brandon, Porirua College and Mana. It made me the man I am today.

I lived through the golden years when Mitsubishi was strong. Porirua was richer and healthier.

I propose getting more businesses and jobs back, but a more robust version. We need lots of diverse jobs.

Once we have that households will be better able to afford rates and commercial rates will help ease the burden on households.

For the people.
