Fresh ideas for Kāpiti’s future
In the months leading up to the 2019 Kāpiti Coast District Council election I’ll begin to share my thoughts on some of the major issues facing Kāpiti, as well as the ideas I’ve been hearing from people I meet with.
Underpinning my approach is the recognition that Kāpiti Coast District Council is heavily in debt and with residents already paying high rates. That means we have to be careful to get maximum value out of every dollar of ratepayer money invested by Council and eliminate waste so that any rate rises can be kept to a minimum.
Kāpiti Coast District Council’s tight financial position also means we need a Mayor who will tirelessly advocate on behalf of our communities and knows how to work with central government so they play their part in supporting and funding the infrastructure Kāpiti needs to grow and thrive.
In the meantime, you can let me know what issues are concerning you and what you think Council needs to focus on through my online survey.
