Electing the Mayor


Best for Christchurch

My principal place of residence is in the Christchurch City Council area.
Three years ago I set out to unite the council, earn the confidence of our community and strategic partners and to get our city back on its feet.
It hasn't been easy, but our finances are now in order, our insurance is settled and our communities' facilities are being restored.
Every step of the way, I've been guided by what I believe is Best for Christchurch.
In the next three years so much more progress will be made. We are on the cusp of something truly exciting. New Zealand's oldest city is becoming New Zealand's newest city.
Three years ago, CERA was in charge. Now it's time for local leadership and for our communities to have a real say in the regeneration opportunities that lie ahead. These things don't just happen by chance.
With my leadership, a united council focused on what's Best for Christchurch, will make it happen. http://www.lianne.co.nz/

Keep Our Assets Canterbury

My principal place of residence is in the Christchurch City Council area.
I am standing as a KOA (Keep our Assets Canterbury) candidate for mayor because we want to win the mayoralty with good policies for Christchurch people.
We want a people-centred city rather than a corporate-centred city.
We also want to see a return to local democracy through open and honest negotiations with central government.
Our policies include: Stopping asset sales; Free and frequent public transport; The living wage ($19.80) as the minimum for all council work; Building 1000 additional council homes for rent and rent-to-buy over 3 years; Ending the corporate stranglehold on the CBD rebuild with stiff rate increases on undeveloped land; Fighting to make all Canterbury rivers swimmable.
These bold policies will improve the lives of everyone living in Canterbury and will save the council money. You can read more about these polices at www.mintoformayor.org.nz
