This blog is part of a series of blogs profiling all candidates standing for Councils across the region who are 35 or under as we aim to increase youth engagement in local politics. Seed Waikato is non-partisan.
Dan decided to stand as he realised that we require young voices dedicated to rural communities, who have a background in helping people and the willingness to get things done.
Dan is eager to provide a loud voice in the push for combating climate change in the Waikato, and Aotearoa New Zealand. The threat to our lives isn’t limited to the future; parts of the Waipā and King Country area are already experiencing increased erosion and flooding with droughts becoming more frequent. These are real problems, needing real leadership.
“The people, communities, and environment of the Waipā – King Country area deserve a representative who will listen and support them.”
