Chris is a current Auckland Councillor and Auckland Transport Board member, and was formerly a Member of Parliament and Mayor of Auckland City.
Under her leadership, she green-lit Britomart Transport Centre and maintained access to Auckland’s rail corridors, thus enabling further development in public transport (like the City Rail Link) as well as opening up Auckland’s waterfront.
Chris is a champion for transparent and effective governance for the Auckland Council.
You know me well enough from the About Me section, but here's the short summary.
I have an Engineering degree from the University of Auckland and currently work in the aviation industry.
I really believe Auckland is in serious need of improved governance and decision making, developing practical solutions to the challenges we face. My background leads to a natural interest in effective transport for the community.
Oh, I'm also standing for the Albert-Eden Local Board.
