Hi, I’m Teena Cornes and together with my husband Richard and children Simon and Stephanie we are a fifth generation Te Aroha family.
I am currently the Board Chair for Te Aroha College, past Board Chair for Te Aroha Primary School, past Trustee for Community Patrols of New Zealand and a Company Director and Shareholder of 2 local businesses.
I strongly believe it is important that council provides the framework for economic growth, environmental, social, sporting and cultural developments.
To achieve these goals I bring extensive business, financial management and strong governance skills, experience as a qualified Resource Management Act Commissioner along with proven ability to work with all groups in our communities. I also have a listening ear for our community and know the importance of advocating when and where I can.
