From Friday 3 December, Porirua City is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
My principal place of residence is in the Northern/Pukerua ki te Raki Ward area.
I'm Brett Crombie and along with representing your concerns and bringing them to the council table, I'll focus on three areas:
Financial responsibility - Porirua's recent and forecast rate rises are alarming. This election is your chance to vote for councillors who view this as a real issue for ratepayers and residents. As a Chartered Accountant I'll put the tough questions to council surrounding expenditure and help avoid the frivolous spend we've seen in recent years.
Focus on core council infrastructure and services - Porirua City Council has been side-tracked by expensive rebrands and self-promotion. I'll redirect the council focus to core functions such as providing robust roading, water and waste services.
Fresh energy and ideas - Porirua should be the best place in the country to raise a family, to start a business or to retire. I'll advocate for council policies that provide opportunity, dignity and safety for all.
