Popularly known as Guru, I am a journalist with 16 years experience covering local politics for the Kāpiti Observer, Kāpiti News and BeachFm. I thank you for supporting me last elections. I am committed to the democratic process. Whether it’s the imposition of water meters, coastal hazard lines or spiraling rates, I have fought for greater transparency, accountability and especially – the people’s right to be heard. The people need to make the decisions not the council bureaucrats. This needs to be fixed. For change support me for the Paraparaumu Ward.
My family and I have lived in Paraparaumu for 18 years. My wife Claire is a local teacher. We have three children. I have an MA in Political Science from Victoria University. I am also an accredited RMA Hearing
Commissioner. I have the experience and passion for Kāpiti to represent you.
