Candidate statement: Dr Nancy Higgins

I am standing for the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board. I have been a
member of the Board in the past and am keen to be involved again. I
have lived in Blueskin Bay for 15 years and own a small lifestyle
block, where I have alpacas and other assorted pets. I am involved in
the Orokonui Sanctuary, the Warrington Reserve Committee, and the
Warrington Residents Association. I believe that our unique environment
and community are assets to Dunedin, and support democratic actions
that will improve and sustain our area for future generations. In the
past, I initiated and led the redevelopment of the Warrington
playground, which, at the time, did not meet safety standards. I work
at the Donald Beasley Institute as a researcher in education and
disability. I am committed to supporting locally based decisions that
help to create communities where both people and our natural
environment are valued.
