Dear King’s Town Residents,

I have appreciated working with you, and for you, over the last twelve years. In that time I have found that as a community we share certain common values and commitments:

  • To build a responsive, people-focused city – a city that is open, innovative and caring about the needs and  aspirations of all its citizens
  • To begin with the basic building blocks of community putting individuals and families, local neighbourhoods, labour and small businesses first in a vibrant, liveable city
  • To start with our positive qualities – our people, creativity and heritage
  • To build a city where there are economic opportunities for all, where the environment is healthy and sustainable for ourselves and our children, which is alive and exciting with cultural and community choices and where no one is left behind

I am committed to this vision on behalf of our neighbourhoods, local communities and our city.
