Mike Rutledge

Committed to Nelson

RUTLEDGE Mike CouncillorMy principal place of residence is in the Nelson City Council - At Large area.

You deserve a Councillor who's committed to making Nelson the best little city to live, work, create, study, raise a family and retire. I love my work as a Nelson Councillor. At 35 with a Master of Commerce degree and strong business background, I have the energy and drive to work for a better Nelson.

I'm proud of my work as Chair of the Regional Transport Committee. My goal is less congestion and safer roads, building systems that work for people and our economy. I'm a practical environmentalist, rolling up my sleeves to help with community conservation projects. As a keen cyclist, I serve as President of Tasman Wheelers.

I believe good governance matters and am a member of the Institute of Directors. Ratepayers money must be invested cautiously and wisely, eliminating bureaucracy and waste. I'm committed to working hard, listening carefully to our community and delivering for our city.
