The Rotorua district we all love has fantastic potential and I’m delighted and humbled to lead its next phases of development as mayor of Rotorua.
By harnessing the community’s collective talent, energy and vision to create a genuine partnership we will together take Rotorua to a great future.
“Let’s recreate ourselves. Let’s define a new attitude that expresses pride and a sense of place and purpose. Let’s make this city buzz with excitement and expectation. That’s where I’m heading – why don’t you join me?” [Inaugural Mayoral speech, 30 October 2012]
