About James: 

Matamata has been my family's home for over 70 years and, as my wife and I raise our three young children here, it will be our home for many years to come. It is therefore a huge privilege to be serving a second term as a district Councillor.

During my first term I aimed to engage young families in local government through targeted consultation and workshops, and promote my interest in environmental sustainability and digital enablement in the council chamber.

Looking forward, the big challenges I see for our community are adapting our infrastructure and planning to climate change and developing strategies to effectively manage our waste being sent to landfill. During this term I aim to continue to listen to residents as an effective advocate for our community on these, and other issues, as we build an energetic and vibrant district.
