I think we need a family man who cherishes our elders, who understands and encourages our youth.
Someone who wants a council that provides excellent value for money, that is open, transparent, and inclusive.
Someone who has business acumen, communication skills, and above all is a good listener.
Someone who has prepared for the role by reading thousands of pages of council documents, interviewed dozens of experts, and has visited thousands of homes in Matua, Pilans Point, Cherrywood, Bureta, Otumoetai, Bellevue, Brookfield, Judea, Bethlehem and Pyes Pa.
Someone who has a proven track record of injecting fresh ideas, taking action, and leading teams to create extraordinary results by setting ambitious goals and taking steps forward.
That someone is me.
If these are the qualities you value, put me, Sheldon Nesdale on Tauranga City Council.
