Huntly Ward
Electing 2 Councillors

LYNCH, Shelley

My principal place of residence is in the Huntly Ward area.

I’ve been a full time Councillor for three terms. I have the experience and knowledge gained from my commitment to the District to be in the best position to continue to promote Huntly’s interests.

I’ve a good understanding of Council issues and procedures and I’m not reluctant to stand my ground when it comes to having my say.

I believe in open and clear communication between myself, other Councillors and the public.

I’m currently Chair of Councils Discretionary and Funding Committee. I’m on the Huntly Community Board, Ohinewai Area Committee, member of Rotary, Glen Afton Pukemiro Committee, Genesis Consultitive Committee. I belong to the Business and Professional Womens Association, Huntly’s Civil Defence committee and a member of the Huntly RSA.

With your help, I hope to continue to serve and represent our Community.
