Cr. Tony Christiansen was elected to the Tauranga City Council, At Large, in October 2010.
I was born in Tauranga and I have lived there all my life. The Tauranga District has been very good to me and the time is right for me to give back. I believe the best way to do this is to be in Council.
Many Council decisions are made by faceless people who were not voted into their positions. The consequences of these decisions affect us immensely and we as ratepayers need to take back control of our city. We need a can−do attitude that prioritises people's needs and Council promises to be implemented and better executed. I believe intransparency and accountability for decisions made and I do not see any value in the confrontational culture that we have at the moment. It's time for a change and given the opportunity and support, I will drive that change on behalf of the residents of Tauranga.
