Phone 04 237 6566
I'm a passionate person over issues that affect our people who live in this wonderful city. I have a great sense humour, love people, love sports, huge arm chair critic and a terrible wanna be coach and referee. Did I mention I was drop dead gorgeous! Was is past tense, yes local issues is my interest but national issues that impact on our lives will also be noted and acted on. Together we can make a difference.
