Annette Achieves Election Goal.
Annette Brosnan, one of only two candidates for Napier’s Onekawa/Tamatea Ward seat, is proud to have completed her campaign.
When Annette decided to stand in this year’s elections she wanted to bring a new generation of thinking to Ward seats on Council. In June Annette set out to knock on every door in her community (4,400 doors, 10,000 people) to personally introduce herself. Three months and two pairs of walking shoes later, she is proud to have completed what she set out to achieve.
“I am so humbled to have met the people of my ward, and so proud to be able to say that every person I want to represent, I have been to their home” “I very passionately believe a Ward Councillor should be approachable and put in the hard work, this is why we have local government”
Annette say’s she wanted to came and meet her Ward, not out of need but out of desire. Annette committed on the 1st day of elections, regardless of any competition to come and meet each home, and although 1 did come in opposition 1,000 doors later, nothing changed for Annette and her commitment to making local government approachable.

Annette not only brings a level of enthusiasm to her Ward that has never been seen before, she is also well qualified for the role. Annette has a Bachelor of Business Studies in which she double majored in management and marketing and she has worked in local government for the Regional Council for the last 5 years.
Annette says “having a background in local government at a staff level, I think forms a really strong platform for me to represent my community in an informed way.”
Annette is a true local to Napier and is against amalgamation, she does not think that the amalgamation model will add anything significant to the region’s performance and she can see no benefit for Napier. Annette is passionate about family communities and wants to support programmes like Neighbourhood Watch and Community Patrols and ensure Council polices like graffiti removal and keeping Napier beautiful are well maintained. Annette wants to help build business through having Council regulation, interagency and funding models that support existing business and attract new businesses to Napier.
With elections finishing on 12 October, this young star is one to watch. Find out more about Annette on facebook www.facebook.com/Annette4Napier
