Cindy Batt

"Kia ora koutou. My name is Cindy Batt and I am seeking your vote for election to the Nelson City Council. I have been part of the region all my life and whakapapa to many iwi and regional settler whanau. A majority of my life I have resided in Nelson and endeavour to make a contribution to our Community. Locally I sit on a number of governing boards, committees and working parties.
I would consider it Council's responsibility to represent the diversity of cultures in Nelson and build the bridges to all the communities of Nelson. I continue to represent iwi at a governance level which has given me an informed insight into opportunities existing here in Nelson and the wider Te Tauihu (Top of the South).
My priorities include sustainable economic growth, community development, inclusive decision making, acknowledgement of historical settlements, and the importance of progressive relationships."
