Huge support for better bus links in Thames Coromandel and other rural districts

95% of submitters to the Waikato Regional Council’s draft Public Transport Plan support much stronger public transport links within and between local towns such as Whitianga, Tairua, Coromandel, Waihi, Thames and Whangamata.  This adds even more weight to the strong case I have been making for government funding for new bus connections in Thames Coromandel and Hauraki.

I’m Standing for Re-election as Thames Coromandel Representative on Waikato Regional Council

As your Thames Coromandel representative on Waikato Regional Council since 2019, I’ve had a significant influence on the council’s actions to control rates, tackle climate change, improve water quality and public transport, boost economic development, and enhance the overall well-being of our communities.  This is great momentum, but there is so much more I wish to achieve for our communities. That is why I am asking for your vote to re-elect me as your regional council representative.

My positive influence on WRC’s actions includes:

Community Benefits/Rates

  • A loan scheme I proposed for eco-retrofitting homes is now WRC’s flagship policy (at no cost to general ratepayers). This scheme will provide low-interest loans to households of up to $15,000 for installations such as double-glazing, insulation, heat pumps, water tanks and solar panels, repayable by way of a targeted rate.
  • A zero-rates increase in the first year of the Covid-19 crisis and better rates relief for low-income households

Economic Development
