Outdoors and Freedom Party Board Member Aly Cook of Kina is making her run for the Mayor of Tasman. If you know people who live in the Tasman area head them to Aly Cook for Mayor of Tasman Facebook Page. Tasman district takes in Golden Bay, Lakes and Murchison, Wakefield, Richmond, Moutere Hills and Motueka. Here is Aly’s 150 word statement in English and Te Reo:

Nelson born, I have lived in Kina for 29 years, married and raised three children, whilst continuing a career nationally/internationally. It’s my experience in handling large events, tour budgets and publicity within the challenging entertainment industry, along with previous work in property development, that gives me the nous needed to be a successful Mayor for Tasman.

I believe people must play an active role in decision making. Tasman needs fearless leadership to fight a government stealing our assets.

We lose via three waters, generationally paid for within our rates, and SNA land grabs of our properties owned by us.

Recovery of our tourism industry is vital, whilst ensuring Tasman continues as the best region to live.

Endorsement by the Outdoors & Freedom Party means carrying our values for the environment, transparent representation, freedom and democracy.

I can be that leader and voice for you, while never forgetting who voted me in.
