Missing the Cook Strait News

September 4, 2022

I placed an ad with Regional News this week, but to be honest, I’ve had no feedback at all that people have seen it. ( Let me know if you have!) Anyway here is my pitch:

Vote #1 Sarah Free for Motukairangi/Eastern Ward

As Deputy Mayor, I’ve worked constructively with others to get things done.

Despite challenges, we’re fixing broken pipes and important buildings such as the Town Hall and Central Library. We’re completing the Omaroro reservoir and Takina convention centre.

Let’s Get Wellington Moving is finally moving, with a second tunnel and significant city-wide improvements in public transport, walking and cycling planned- allowing more housing and climate-friendly transport choices for us all.

We must continue to protect our stunning natural environment, but our biggest strength is people.   We need a safe, vibrant CBD and thriving suburban businesses. We need to ensure the city works for everyone and residents feel heard. 

Locally, I’m proud to have led on new cycleways and walkways for the East including at Oriental Bay and Cobham Drive. I’ve worked with GWRC colleagues to improve our bus network, advocated for bus lanes and shelters, for a plan to fix our wharves and for upgrades to several playgrounds and community facilities.

My focus is on improving transport options, resilient infrastructure, thriving businesses and communities, and clear priorities for spending. 

The times are not easy- now more than ever we need experienced, capable, responsive leadership.  Please support me with your #1 vote.

I’m shown here welcoming the new toilet facilities and drinking fountain at Monorgan Park play area with Strathmore Park Residents Association President Karl Frost ( thanks to Karl for permission to use this photo).
