Kelvin Davis has the following priorities:
- To improve educational outcomes
- To grow the Te Tai Tokerau economy
- To increase the number of people who can speak Māori
- To eliminate sexual violence
Kelvin believes that improving outcomes in these four priorities will elevate the people of Te Tai Tokerau educationally, financially, culturally and socially, and allow Māori whanau and hapu to achieve beyond our potential.
Ko Taumarere te awa.
Ko Puketohunoa te maunga.
Ko Ngati Manu te hapu.
Kelvin is a successful former teacher and school Principal who turned a struggling Northland school around, and enabled the students to achieve beyond their potential.
Born and bred in the Bay of Islands but now living in Kaitaia, Kelvin is a man of the north who brings skills in education and Māori issues.
He is a person with common sense and pragmatism who is able to relate across all sectors of society, but is most at home either fishing or up in the bush of his beloved Karetu Valley.
