The Kāpiti Coast has the most accessible and safest beaches in the region. As a candidate for Mayor, I have an LL.B BA and bring experience in operating small businesses, and will emphasise progress and protecting the coastal environment. Our family have been on the Kāpiti Coast, Manly Street, Paraparaumu Beach, for twenty years. I have two daughters attending a local school.
