Definitely standing in the 2019 Local Body Elections

I’ll be asking you to make me your “squeaky wheel” on both the local Health Board and Auckland Council’s Hibiscus and Bays Local Board. Why did I choose this old phrase? I was motivated by this quote:

“The squeaky wheel does get the oil.” – Cynthia Gillespie, AT’s Chief Strategy Officer, 12/3/18

If indeed this is how the technocracy/bureaucracy operates, a vote for me gets a vocal representative for the Coast to get the attention it wants and needs. Let’s make ourselves heard loud and clear for better transport solutions and a healthier community through better access to health care services.

In the coming months I’ll blog more on just what I will advocate for, but for now, I would just love to hear what you think the squeaky wheels are on the Coast.
