I’m interested in “big-picture” issues, so I try not to sweat the small stuff.

Many people are not that familiar with what Waikato Regional Council does so I will try to help with that here.

Otherwise, I will focus on Thames Coromandel climate change and coastal hazard issues, but there will be times when other local, New Zealand, and international topics will get attention.

Holding institutions and office holders to account is important.  Sometimes I will express strongly held opinions.  I’m interested in a respectful exchange of ideas and opinions.  But I won’t tolerate personal denigration and abuse, racism, and misogyny.  If you troll or spam you will be banned.
