Trindi the activist

Not your average candidate

In times of complexity and constant societal change, we need very effective local government. 

This local body election offers us an opportunity to ensure those representing us as Ward Councillors and on the Motueka Community Board, have a proven track record in activism and community connectedness. They need to know their constituency. 

Trindi Walker meets this criteria. Of particular value is her long years of hands on experience in working with people in our communities who seldom have their voices represented in the decision making processes. These are the marginalised, vulnerable and on the fringes.

Trindi understands the impacts of local government because she has worked alongside them, for many years, resulting in a depth of knowledge and experience which is rare in politics. Those who know her recognise her activism and advocacy to support justice and fairness.

  Trindi has experience, skills, and knowledge which will strengthen the Motueka Ward Council and Motueka Community Board's capacity and capability to make informed decisions based on facts rather than assumptions, resulting in stronger, inclusive and thriving communities.
