FROM Page 28 organisations, I have a clear under- standing of the difference between governance and management. As the manager of Nelson Women's and Children's Refuge I report to a governance group, and historically I have also been an active member of governance and board of trustees. I see the role of a councillor is to encourage public participation in decision-making as much as possible and to create opportunities for ownership of decisions made by and for the people in the region. I want to balance the provision of core services with maintaining affordable rates, controlling debt levels, and being a voice that effectively promotes and protects ratepayers' interests. Luke Acland I am a 33-year- old lawyer living in Nelson with my wife Libby and our two boys. I'm excited to be standing for council. I advised the group that challen- ged the council's pokie policy in 2011/2012. The experience uncovered some gaps in the council's processes. I want to be constructive in plugging those gaps and continue working with the community, but this time from the inside. My goals as a first term councillor are for council to: 1) collaborate with the community and not make decisions in isolation; 2) prioritise essential needs; and 3) support the cultural/sporting initiatives currently in place. If I have the opportunity of sitting at the council's table I'll watch out for the council's legal obligations and make sure that our money isn't wasted in court. I am open. I am reliable. I'll work hard for Nelsonians. Derek Shaw Currently a city councillor, I have 30 years' experience in local government. I'm the co- portfolio holder governance, co- chairman of the framing our future committee, and member of the regional transport committee, joint shareholders committee and regional sewerage business unit. I'm an accredited resource management commissioner (chair- man) and an active member of the biodiversity and sustainability forums. I'm married with three young adult children and operate a part- time publishing business, Nikau Press. I continue to be actively involved in the community, including being a trustee of the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust, the Tasman Regional Sports Event Trust, Nelson Environment Centre, as well as participating in athletics as an offic- ial and competitor. If re-elected, I'm keen to continue using my experience, knowledge and energies in ensuring Nelson remains a great place to live, with our special heritage, arts, cultural, recreational and environ- mental features safeguarded, and that we have safe and resilient communities. Matt Lawrey Fifteen years as a journalist in Nelson have given me a real insight into what makes this city special. Nelsonians have trusted me with their stories in The Leader and on radio and I've built a huge network of contacts from all walks of life. My family and I love Nelson, and I'm committed to working hard to make it an even better place to live. There are things we can do with- out breaking the bank that will make our community stronger and wealthier. They include getting more people living in the central city, retaining the cultural events that put Nelson on the map, protecting our natural environment and making Stoke's commercial centre more attractive to people and business. A successful career in print, radio and television, and my inter- nationally published cartoon The Little Things, prove I know how to make things happen. Kevin Gardener Nelsonian by birth, married with two adult daughters. Organiser of the successful petition to force the council to rescind the decision to create a sep- aratist Maori Ward. Board member of Nelson Grey- power with portfolios of housing and superannuation. President of a nationwide organis- ation. Member of a Nelson and New Zealand historical society and RSA. I have been an employer and worker in the motoring industry all my working life, also administrator and competitor in motorsport. Member of Vintage Car Club of New Zealand and Automobile Association, 25-plus years. Wanting to help others change the current culture of councillors' wants to one of ratepayers' needs when it comes to rates money spending. Using commonsense policies, commonsense principles to achieve commonsense results to the benefit of all Nelsonians, not any one section above others. Households live within their income, so should the council and not leave a legacy of debt for future Nelsonians. Joy Shackleton As a committed and active member of the Tahunanui community I feel strongly that I can make a valuable contri- bution to Nelson City Council. During a ten-year period of my life I worked and travelled overseas widely. Upon my return to New Zealand I completed a bachelor's degree in teaching and learning. Over the last ten years, besides devoting my time to my family, I have become increasingly involved with the Tahunanui community where I was born and raised and continue to live. I am extremely passionate about our beautiful city and would be honoured if I were to be elected to serve the people of Nelson as councillor. Now is an important time moving forward for Nelson City. I would hope to bring fresh eyes and a new perspective to the table. I am an honest, reliable individual with an open mind and a good ability to communicate. More council candidate profiles next week.
