Better city for all.
Putting the needs of all people first, and at the heart of Council's decisions is important to me. This means not just talking to you, but listening to you, AND working alongside you. Our best success comes from working with our willing partners and our local communities. I want a city where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
Safer city for all.
We all want, and deserve, to feel safe at work, at play and at home. I also have been very concerned about crime in our city and want to positive difference. We have a lot to do. I have already strengthened partnerships with Police, and key agencies to create the "Safest City Taskforce". But I know that to make true progress we must collaborate with a wide range of community and safety services and of course you. I want to support others to build a safer Hamilton.
Better homes for all
Every person deserves a place to call home. Our housing market must create well- designed and affordable homes. While progress has been made there is much more to do. I want to ensure Hamilton City Council continues to play it's part in enabling better housing outcomes, including affordable homes to buy or rent supported by great local neighbourhoods.
Better transport and transport choice.
Hamiltonians want roads and footpaths to be safe and maintained. You want traffic to flow and access to reasonable parking. You also want safe cycling and walking routes . It is not a matter of cars versus bikes or buses. It is about transport choice. It is about creating opportunities for more walking, cycling, scooting, car sharing and passenger transport to create the modern, low carbon city we need and deserve. I want a safe and efficient transport network.
