Welcome from Pippa

Pippa Coom

After nine years on the Waitematā Local Board I am delighted to have been elected on 12 October 2019 as councillor for the Waitematā and Gulf ward of Auckland Council.

What can you expect from me as a councillor?  I will build on extensive experience in governance, a network of community relationships, and an understanding of the issues that matter to Aucklanders. My leadership style is inclusive and respectful, I seek consensus rather than division, and I value teamwork and open communication. I will be a councillor who is available and accessible, and I will be there in person for community events, big and small.

I’m also transparent, maintaining a full public  declaration of interests and monthly reports on my activities.

I look forward to building strong relationships with the three local boards in Waitematā and the Gulf, serving my entire ward and working hard to fulfil the aspirations of all Aucklanders.
