I have a diverse range of skills and experience with a background as a veterinarian, farmer and business owner, and latterly the Canterbury Water Management Strategy.
I strongly support the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and its collaborative processes around the key issue of balancing social, cultural, and economic values with responsible environmental objectives as a vital plank in the work of Environment Canterbury.
I seek a common-sense approach to regulations, with achievable timeframes for practical solutions to be implemented. This will drive outcomes that result in a healthy environment for us all. However, every Canterbury citizen has a responsibility to consider the impacts of their actions on the environment and has a part to play in ensuring a sustainable future.
You will find I am approachable, committed to transparent and consultative engagement and problem solving that achieves fair and constructive results.
I am very keen to see a strong Regional Governance that “builds bridges”, by developing a greater degree of trust and respect between the Council, the ratepayers, stakeholders, and the public of Canterbury.
I want a united Canterbury that stands proud as one.
