Angela Strange standing for Waikato Regional Council

Angela from Chartwell

Hi everyone, I am pleased to announce that I am standing in the upcoming Local Body Elections, representing the Hamilton Constituency for Waikato Regional Council.

The Waikato region is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It’s important that growth is well-planned and sustainable, with the health of our environment at its core.

I am committed to prudent financial management, ensuring smart investment in infrastructure, and providing core services cost-effectively.

We must ensure our transport network is balanced, efficient and accessible, providing a diverse range of options.

Water is an essential resource, requiring protection for future generations; the health of our waterways is an important component of this.

It’s important we value healthy air and soils, biosecurity and ecological restoration.

Environmental education develops the ability to think and act sustainably. I have been an active supporter of the Enviroschools programme over many years.

I represent hard work, integrity and loyalty, and am proud to be a part of a growing, vibrant region with a key role to play in New Zealand’s future.

Consequences

Paul from Pukete

I obtained drug convictions in my youth that have haunted me my entire life. even though it’s been 34 years since my last drug conviction, it’s still making my life difficult advises.Tuari Potiki: departing chair of the NZ Drug Foundation,

In 2019-20 there were more than 3000 convictions for minor drug offences and about 40 per cent of those were Māori. Māori carry the burden of our drug laws, receiving 49 per cent of all convictions for drug possession and use, and they are more likely to go to prison for low-level offences than non-Māori.

Convictions don’t work. They hang over you forever and impact every facet of your life. But they have been proven to do nothing whatsoever to reduce drug use or harm among those unlucky enough – or Māori enough – to be caught.

Well sorry to hear that , Tuari  there is a  word for that, its called consequences the law held you accountable for your actions ,sorry your actions where your choice you knew the law and you knew the consequences suck it up
