Jonny Best – Profile

A Kāpiti resident for over 20 years, I live in Raumati with my wife and 3 young children.

Qualified in the building and construction trade, I currently work as a Training Advisor for the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation.

Previously I have worked at Paraparaumu Airport as a pilot/instructor.

I am seeking re-election to the Paraparaumu-Raumati Community Board,

having served my first term.

I am a strong supporter of Community Boards. The role of a Community

Board is to advocate and represent the views of the community. I would

like to see the Board engaging more with the community. It is important that the Board itself has a cross-section of viewpoints; I want to represent the many young families in our community.

We need to accept significant growth and change in the area, but ensuring that the community’s views are considered for the best outcomes for its residents.
