Thank you Tauranga for voting for a clear mandate for change.
You have voted decisively and overwhelming for change. You have voted for the better leadership Tauranga deserves
For those who voted for me I am deeply grateful. For those who did not I look forward to earning your trust and respect over time.
I will serve diligently as a Mayor for all people.
I have promised to work hard to deliver an inclusive and respectful council that listens and collaborates with the community.
That work starts today. The change starts now.
I will be accessible and open to conversations and work hard to develop partnerships that move us forward positively and progressively.
And above all, I will keep you informed. We are all in this together; success will come from unity and partnership.
I look forward to serving you well.
