Auckland’s best views, beautiful parks and nature reserves, bakeries, sushi shops, maroon rugby jumpers, that small town feeling. Just some of the reasons why Shanan has lived here for a decade now.
It’s why Shanan and his partner bought their first home here and why he continues to chair the Birkdale Beach Haven Community Project, promoting the community’s well-being.
Shanan is proud of how Northcote pulled together when Covid-19 threatened jobs and incomes and why he is working hard to make sure we build back better and secure long term gains from the investment the Government is making to secure our recovery.
Before he was elected to Parliament Shanan spent 15 years in education leadership and management at tertiary institutions and he is now putting the skills he learned to use for the work he is prioritising for Northcote:
- Improving local transport infrastructure, better and cheaper public transport and new walking and cycling links to Albany, Takapuna and across the Waitematā
- Investment to make our great local schools even better
- Building the warm, dry homes local families need and working with local agencies to welcome them to our community
- Supporting local businesses to thrive and future-proof themselves with support to get online, access the skilled staff they need locally and improve their productivity
Northcote is the greatest place to live in Auckland, but working together with support from Government, we can make it even better!
