Sarah believes that local councils should advocate for the concerns of their community.

I am standing again for Wellington’s beautiful Motukairangi Eastern Ward. I love Wellington and have worked hard for residents.

I’ve successfully led the rollout of new cycleways and walkways and championed local stormwater projects and improvements to community facilities.

I’m actively involved in beach clean-ups and keeping our environment well-planted and predator-free. 

Public transport changes have been a challenge; - I’ve been a strong and effective advocate in urging the Regional Council to fix its broken routes and timetables. I’ve led work on our Council for better bus priority and more shelters.

My priorities are: towards zero carbon/zero waste with a step change in public transport, walking and cycling; trials of new transport technologies; clean water and plastic-free beaches; better stormwater control; good housing; sensible earthquake strengthening including fast-tracking opening the Central Library; city-wide community facilities and gardens; “buy-local” purchasing policies; no airport runway extension or further vanity projects.
