I’m Gwynn Compton and I’m standing to be your Mayor and as a Districtwide Councillor on the Kāpiti Coast District Council. Kāpiti is the best place in New Zealand to live and raise a family, and I want to keep it that way for future generations.
The completion of Transmission Gully in 2020 offers great opportunities for Kāpiti, but we’re already seeing our district struggle with existing population growth. With that growth only set to accelerate, I’m concerned about how we’re going manage that while preserving the relaxed and friendly lifestyle we enjoy on the Kāpiti Coast.
I believe Kāpiti is in need of fresh leadership, a fresh approach, and fresh ideas so everyone can enjoy the exciting future ahead of us.
