Iride McCloy is standing for the Waikanae Ward Council seat.
“I have lived most of my life on the Kāpiti Coast and 30 years in Waikanae. As a Board Director, former member of the New Zealand Institute of Directors, Chairperson of a prominent Kāpiti Body Corporate, Justice of the Peace and a Kāpiti Consumer representative on the ICC Acute & Community Care Steering Group with the CCDHB in conjunction with our own Kāpiti Health Advisory Group, I have a strong background in governance, community activity and business.
Central and Local Government are setting out new formulas for the Local Authorities and Waikanae appears to have become just a blip on our Council’s radar! We pay high Rates, but get little for them. I believe that we have not had good elected advocacy. I will ensure our voices are heard. A priority if elected will be focusing on core Council responsibilities and fiscal prudence to keep Rates increases down.”
