Kathleen Filo (Independent)

Candidate for Hutt Mana Charitable Trust


My principal place of residence is in the Porirua City area. I am also standing for Councillor- Porirua City Council.

Born in Porirua, raised in Titahi Bay then County Longford Ireland. Married 17 years to my husband who is a firefighter and of Samoan descent. I'm a mother of 3 teenagers and of Ngāti Toa, Ngāti Tama descent, Irish and German.

I believe the cultural diversity in our home is representative of our communities today. We have a vested interest.

I love our city and wider region. A business woman I understand the Trust needs to build its assets to be able to reinvest in our communities.

I facilitate programmes and services to support the vulnerable and enhance positive outcomes in the Greater Wellington Region through a network of organisations.

I will support opportunities that enrich the wellbeing of our communities, protect and utilise our natural environment for future generations and ensure vibrant, safe and family friendly neighbourhoods.

Vote for Kathleen Filo as an advocate for all people.
