Zone 6 | Otago Peninsula Community Board Member
Christine Garey has served as a community board member for the past nine years; both as Deputy Chairperson and most recently as Chairperson of the Otago Peninsula Community Board.
Her background is in tourism, marketing, education and local government. For the past year she has been actively representing the lower South Island (Zone 6) on the national executive – the Community Boards’ Executive Committee (CBEC), reinstating zone meetings and ensuring the concerns of member boards are heard at a national level. Christine successfully led an appeal to the Local Government Commission to ensure the future of local community boards and is passionate about the value boards bring to their communities and parent councils.
She is committed to professional development opportunities for members and enhancing the performance of boards. As a newly elected city councillor appointed to a community board and therefore eligible to stand for CBEC, and with her extensive experience as a community board member, Christine Garey is uniquely placed to represent you on the Community Boards’ Executive Committee as the Zone 6 representative.
