The People's Choice is standing the following candidates for the Cashmere Ward
- Lee and Helene for the Community Board
I’m proud to call Cashmere home, it's a unique and very special environment.
As an experienced Project Manager, Licensed Builder and volunteer Youth Mentor I have a depth of real life skills and knowledge that enable me to advocate strongly and effectively for this community.
I work collaboratively and transparently and will bring more opportunities for residents to connect and thrive; further ensuring the services we all rely on don't get neglected and remain readily available and accessible.
I'm leading a campaign to keep medical services at Princess Margaret Hospital, to ensure all residents within our Southern suburbs can access lower cost healthcare.
As an active member of Otakaro Orchard's Board I support locally grown produce and greater education on food quality. I know great things can be delivered by 'bottom up' community initiatives when rightly empowered.
I’m approachable and will bring new energy, balance and focus into this role.

I am a current Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board member, chair of the Opawaho-Heathcote River Network, and past-president of National Council of Women (Christchurch Branch). I
have a PhD in Speech Therapy, and have worked as computer programmer, business analyst, and waste minimisation consultant.
I have lived in the local community for 30 years and our children attended Cashmere schools. A practical environmentalist, I’ve organised successful river clean-ups and waste reduction programmes in schools, hospitals and factories. I’m keen to continue using my skills and energy on the Board to help in the huge post-quake task.
I am opposed to selling Council assets like the port, airport, or electricity network. I want to see good design and business activity in rebuilt shopping centres, realistic solutions to congestion and housing shortages, along with a healthy environment for all, with special concern for children, elderly and people with disabilities.
