Here is my candidate profile for inclusion in the booklet sent to all homes with voting papers and my candidate video. They explain why I'm standing and what are the most important issues facing the island.
I am standing as the independent choice for Waiheke and Rakino voters.
There must be an end to the past three years of waste, lack of accountability and neglect of basic services. As Deputy Chair of the first Waiheke Local Board, I have the experience and knowledge to refocus energy into better infrastructure for a prosperous future.
I was founding publisher of the successful Waiheke Marketplace (1998) ensuring a positive voice for the community. Since 2013, I have provided an authoritative, independent commentary on Council matters through my daily on-line publication www.joholmes.com. Find out more about me and my achievements there.
Founding member and Spokesperson for the Auckland Ratepayers’ Alliance, established to fight Auckland Council’s culture of waste. I have championed our 16,000 members in their battle for reasonable rates and sensible spending.
