Vision of Whangarei - Northern Advocate - 8th September 2013

A vibrant, more prosperous place to live

My vision for Whangarei is one of prosperity and growth for the businesses and communities that are the fabric of our district. Northland is among New Zealand’s most diverse regions, and Whangarei is its commercial heart.

We have a strong foundation forbecoming more self-sustainable and offering more choice to a wider skill and industry base.  Potentially, we could become the nation’s next boomtown - attracting new industry developments from elsewhere and encouraging local enterprises.  As this fuels growth in our economy and our population, all of Whangarei will benefit, with more skilled jobs, more products and services available locally, and more money spent here.

With this vision in mind, I will lead Council in bringing new industry here, and provide growth initiatives and the infrastructure needed to support it. We need to seize our opportunities.  Join me in making our future as a vibrant, more prosperous place to live.
