Kia ora, I’m Tania McInnes and I want to be your next mayor.
After, what will be six years as deputy mayor of the Far North; four plus years prior working within local government and ongoing involvement in community development projects; I know what needs to be done to elevate our council and our district. I have waited, I have observed, I have listened. Now I am ready to act.
My drive is motivated by the desire to influence, advocate, support and empower, so that we might shine like we should. Be known as innovators, trail blazers, game changers.
I am future focused, a fresh thinker, a change agent. I understand local government and its potential. I have the progressive leadership and experience needed to drive change to proactively move our district forward. My heart is in our communities. I hold the vision, I have the courage and care a whole damn lot!
I do not underestimate the challenges before me, nor have I ever lost sight of the opportunities. I believe that true success will come for our district through working together, having unity of purpose and backing our people, while looking after our backyard. I ask for your support.
It's about us. Our people, our place.
