What do I want to achieve as a youth councillor?

In terms of achievement, encouraging the youth to be involved in community services is a goal I want to strive for. Some areas of non-profit services could include (but are not limited to) : volunteering at Hohepa, rest homes for the elderly, Nourish for Nil and the SPCA. Another objective I would like to aim for is creating youth groups that are not religion based. Essentially, this idea would promote an inclusive society and enhance the overall well-being of the youth. Additionally, I have an inclination for reinforcing recreational sports and exercise to occur in hopes of creating an active social unit within Hastings.

What do I love about Hastings?

Among many things, an aspect I love about Hastings is how we celebrate the diversity of culture and nationality.

Taxpayer money is clearly well spent as our roads excel to the safety standards they need to be, government funded schools receive the quality facilities and resources required to obtain optimum knowledge and our rivers are well regulated too. More importantly, however, is that Hastings is a community where we are all bound together by strong relationships—this is one of the reasons I adore Hastings. Also, I love how members of Hastings are growing towards the movement to better our ecological environment. On the proposed date of May 1, 2020 and forwards, homes within the current Council urban rubbish and recycling collection zone will receive a wheelie bin and/or waste container for general rubbish to then recycle. Again, this is the epitome of why I love Hastings--we are not afraid to implement change for the greater good of our citizens
