Refreshing is an appropriate description for the recently appointed Mercury Bay Community Board chair.

Krissy Robinson only stepped up to the plate after noticing there was a low response to available community board positions just prior to the recent elections.

Now she has accepted the role of board chair and she has some clear issues that she wishes to address.

Business strategy sits comfortably with Krissy, having run her own business in this area while with her husband, they operate the Whitianga-based Wild Wood Mini Putt Golf venture.

On her wish list after three years, Krissy notes: “I would like to ensure the cycleway strategy is being implemented and I would like to see more done with pensioner housing.”

She said there was already a waiting list for pensioner housing and there were only going to be more requirements and demands on this.

Being younger and relatively new to the region, Krissy believes she can put a different perspective on the challenges and issues both the community board and council face.

This includes better connection across the community and an assurance of two-way communication.

Affordable housing and addressing this is matter is critical for her, but all issues she said need to come from the bottom up.
