Hilary Wooding contests board seat

Campaign Statement

The Kāpiti Coast is a fantastic place to live! I came to Raumati Beach in 1990 when I became the District Libraries Manager, building the award winning Paraparaumu Library in 2002.

While a strong infrastructure water, roads, sewerage etc is vital, other amenities are important to create a vibrant community for our families.

I will work for:

  • arts and recreation and libraries

  • improved health facilities

  • increased business and tourism opportunities

  • a realistic approach to development

  • solutions to climate change challenges

  • good public transport networks

  • mitigating the effects of the disastrous Sandhills motorway if it cannot be halted is a priority

    This ward encompasses three very different and unique communities Paekakriki, Raumati South and Raumati Beach – which must be preserved and enhanced.

    As a third term councillor I will bring experience to this position which will assist the Paekākāariki and Raumati communities.

    Hilary Wooding is also standing for the Raumati/Paekākāariki Ward council seat
