Around 2000 island residents adding dynamic to our community
Niche tourism at levels that enhances our lifestyles
Biodiversity going through the roof without pests present
Pristine beaches and freshwater streams
Subsidised septic improvements in built up areas
Reduced waste and creative recycling
A place to barter and trade excess food and goods
A Great Barrier Enterprises Board
Barrier fish and meat businesses
Full employment and training opportunities for our youth and young people.
I am committed to :
protecting the unique natural environment of the islandsustainable economic growth and employment
promoting youth employment and wellbeing
I 'Walk the Talk’ by:
Participating in community affairs and planning
Actively protecting native species in a 640 hectare sanctuary
Creating and sustaining employment
Buying local and supporting local business

Engaging with youth
Barrier is the best place on the planet to live
That sustainable means making better use of what we have, not more
That building the size of our community will improve local economic viability
