Lawrence Watt for Whau Local Board

Kia Ora I'm Lawrence Watt standing for the Whau local board.

 You might have seen me around the traps - walking in Green Bay or the Waitakeres, in the library, at a film, swimming at French Bay - or picking up beer cans and plastic bags at the beach.

 I love living out west. I like both the outdoors and people. As we get more people and more cars though, those open spaces are even more valuable.

I grew up in Green Bay, where my parents taught locally, and have lived in the area for most of my life, now in Titirangi.

 In my work I write and research about history, business, and current affairs for various media. I have been a press secretary to Prime Minister Mike Moore, communications manager for UNICEF, and produced a travelling World War I museum. Board/ management experience includes the Passchendaele Society and a large tennis club. I'm experienced at getting my views across.

 With your support I would:

 * Invest in cultural, sports and artistic activities for people of all ages including a swimming pool, probably at New Lynn, parks, playgrounds and libraries.

* Improve council facilities.

* Clean up harbours and waterways.

* Retain local heritage, green spaces and assets. Protect trees.

* Reduce climate change

* Improve public transport and park & ride.

* Expand walkways and cycle tracks.

* Support local business and jobs.

 Please feel free to email or phone me (09 817 5536) if you have any questions about what I want to achieve.
