“Kia ora e te whanau, I acknowledge Ngāti Haumia Ki Paekākāriki and all that have gone before to make our community what it is today. I’m standing to give something back to our village. I am unashamedly progressive and proud to support our village in all its diversity,” says Christian Judge, candidate for the Paekākāriki Community Board.
“My policies are to push for enhanced road safety, especially around our wonderful school; to balance enhanced housing accessibility and the maintenance of our village’s unique character; to support diversity, including by being on this year’s Pride Committee.”
Christian says he will also push for investment to protect our foreshore and the North End of Tilley Road from climate impacts.
“I’ll support our arts community as I’m a DJ on Paekākāriki FM and help with station management. May my experience working in central and local government (KCDC) give me the patience to deal with them on your behalf.”
