Martin works with all sectors of the community taking the time to listen in order to inform his decisions. Martin understands that council decisions affect people’s lives and he takes that responsibility seriously. While Martin strongly supports economic development it must be balanced with fairness to our communities. “He listens well to everyone, has the common touch and tries his best for people,” says Hamilton GP Dr Leo Revell.
“Martin is a person with high community standards who represents the wider community and takes the time to listen to the issues relating to the business sector. This balanced approach assists the gathering of information that provides the best decision for Hamilton,” says Ray Mudford, Hamilton investor and community activist.
