Who am I ?

• I have enjoyed the privilege of serving the Tairawhiti community as Deputy Mayor since 2013. This has been my 2nd term on Council and I value the experience and in-depth knowledge of Council’s inner workings that I have accrued over the past 6 years.

• My husband, Deon, and I are the lucky parents of Alexander (11) and Luk Henri (9), who were both born in Gisborne. The boys attend St. Mary’s Primary School and Campion College and Deon works as an Anaesthetist at Gisborne Hospital. Our family loves sport and the great Gisborne outdoors and we are active members of several Gisborne Sports Clubs.

• Aside from my GDC and Health Board committee work, I am actively involved with many community organisations in our region. I value the opportunity to interact and consult with constituents as often as possible.

• I bring experience from both an academic (M.Sc) and a business background, and I am confident that I have the skills to be the voice for the Gisborne community and bring youth, energy and a common sense approach to the Council.

Why am I standing for Council and the Tairawhiti Health Board?

   I understand what young families need and value and I want to advocate on our behalf to make Gisborne an even better place for our young ones.

   I know that Council needs business-minded people, like myself, to make sensible, forward-thinking financial decisions with input from our community. We need to make sure that our hard-earned money is wisely and conservatively spent.

   We also need more women around the Council table – we bring an unique set of qualities to the table.

   As a trustee of the Tairawhiti Positive Aging Trust (TPAT), I am acutely aware of the challenges that our older residents face. It is important for me to work towards a better quality of life for those valued members of our society.

   I am a great team player – I know that I would be a valuable voice in the team of councillors who will strive to make the best decisions to ensure that Gisborne is an even more fantastic place to live and to raise our children.

   “I want GDC to be pro-active in looking after our environment. We need to plan for climate change and also focus on looking after our fresh water resources for the future. GDC cannot be complacent in this area."


    My medical research background, combined with a passion to improve the health outcomes for our community has helped me to have a productive first term on the Health Board. I am also a trustee of Sport Gisborne Tairawhiti and have always had a keen interest in health related matters. I look forward to continue to work hard for our community.

Why Vote for me? 


"I love our place. I want be part of the team that works hard towards a future where through Economic Development, the Tairawhiti region would have local employment options for our children, where we would take a pro-active approach to plan for an older society, and where we would take pride in looking after our environment.
I know I can make a positive difference."


If you want to see a vibrant, passionate person with a can-do attitude be part of the decision-makers for our great town, make sure you make a big tick next to Rehette Stoltz!
