Candidate statement: Andy Barratt

I have lived and worked in the Dunedin region since 1977. Since taking
early retirement from the University of Otago, where I held a number
of senior academic positions, I have centred my activities in the
Waikouaiti area. My wife, Sue, and I have a small holding in Merton,
where we grow fruit, nuts, vegetables and timber trees. I am a board
member of Dunedin Rural Development and co-chair of River-Estuary Care
Waikouaiti-Karitane.

I believe that the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board has a vital role
to play in the preservation and promotion of the unique character and
values of the communities it serves. I am convinced that the future of
our region will rely on appropriate and sustainable development of
local enterprises. If elected, I would strive to ensure that the Board
operates in an open and responsive manner and deals promptly with the
concerns of local citizens.
