Come along and join the fun as we celebrate the official opening of Stages 3 & 4 of the Kamo Shared Path. Walk, run, ride, skate, skoot the new shared path (6.4km round trip to Fisher Terrace, Kamo).
The road-separated route connects together the communities, schools and key facilities such as:
• the Auckland University Campus,
• Whangarei City Centre and
• Kensington Park.
The shared path is one of three (Onerahi, Raumanga, Kamo) designed to get more Whangarei people off the road and more able to move around by cycling or walking.
As well as creating safe links for school children and workers the routes should ease pressure on the city’s roads and increase health and wellbeing in the community.
Northland MP Matt King is floating a member's bill which would require the criminal history of election candidates to be published, if they were convicted of a crime punishable by two or more years' jail time. What do you think? Would it change the way you vote?
Well, I enjoyed the experience of running for the council in Whangarei. I will run again in 2022.
I am still part of the council in that I am the co-chair of the council disability advisory group, I am also involved in other community organizations. And will continue to lobby WDC and others on the community's behalf.
Thanks to those who voted for me.
