ChCh Local Election Submission by Patricia Siataga
Raised and nurtured in Spreydon by the communities of West Spreydon School, South Intermediate and Hagley High School. I’ve had a career of service in education, social services, community and economic development.
I still live in the Barrington neighbourhood where my family thrived and best friends and memories were made.
‘Leading through service’ is a deeply engrained philosophy of my Pacific and Christian upbringing and I’m ready to serve the community that has given so much to me.
My three main focus areas are:
Pacific - Enhancing connections and activity between Pacific and mainstream initiatives.
Youth - Empowering youth to achieve their true potential.
Education - Ensuring that our educational and community activities align with the aspirations of our young people.
I will listen and encourage community engagement to ensure well informed decision making to ensure the most positive impactful outcomes are achieved.
