Allison Roe MBE (Retiring 2019 Election)
Rodney Local Board member

Rodney First, Warkworth Subdivision

Allison Roe has been on the Takapuna Local Board since 2013 and was previously a member of the Waitemata District Health Board

A resident of Point Wells she is now standing for the Rodney Local Board with the Rodney First group to bring some vision and knowledge to improving the district.

She is a former world class athlete who has created businesses in television production, public relations, and land development.

Allison will work with and encourage our active communities to lead and will help to build relationships that influence council decision making.  She believes new thinking is essential to get a better deal all around as Auckland’s prime ‘rural’ area at a time of incredible growth.

Allison is passionate about the development of cycleways and walkways, and chairs the Matakana Coast Trail Trust. She hopes that developing these across Rodney will stimulate the economy as well as provide infrastructure, health and recreational benefits.

Allison is a lateral thinker and understands how council works.  She will rattle cages to get ‘stuff’ done.  When council budgets disappoint and fall short as they often do she would encourage ‘outside-the-square thinking’ involving the community to find solutions.  Now is the time to put Rodney First!
