Jessica Rose on why she loves Avondale and the Whau
Popped along to a great local event in Avondale the other weekend. Fantastic art and community, with young photography artist Jakob Hamilton behind the lens. Thanks to I Love Avondale, The Creative Souls Project, and a little help from Panuku, among others. It looked like the welcome to Avondale sign had a bit of a dressing up, and the cup of coffee really made the afternoon sofa sit complete.
This year, for the first time, the Green Party is running three outstanding candidates for the Whau Local Board: Jessica Rose, Lawrence Watt, and Jessamine Fraser. Ms Fraser is also standing for a seat on the Auckland Council, representing the Whau Ward.
Green Party candidates for the Whau Local Board are fronting the urgent need for climate action in our area. The Whau River provides a strong and beautiful heart to the Whau Ward, but rising sea levels put the surrounding areas at risk. It is critical that we ensure the area is climate ready and do our part to reduce the effects of climate change for everyone.
