A father of two, a vested community member and 17 years' experience in leading community/non-profit work. A strong background in leadership training, facilitation, counselling, drug/family abuse and uplifting projects, i.e. food kitchens, housing projects.
I'm not running for a seat to achieve a political agenda. My goals are to listen, research and use my experiences as a leader, community member, and father to serve by showing genuine care where it matters and leading to a win-win outcome for all.
Porirua Council needs effective guidance, focused communication and a reasonable, achievable action plan. Our communities are not a resource or commodity, they are human beings and should be treated as such. My knowledge and expertise in uplifting communities (especially in the area of mental health) will encourage the local board to better represent your interests.
