About Us

Heart of the Shore is a strong team of committed and community-minded candidates who are standing for Devonport-Takapuna Local Board.

The team is led by Devonport-Takapuna Local Board member Jan O’Connor, who is renowned for listening to the community and advocating on their behalf. Her unstinting service to the community was recognised in the 2019 New Year Honours, when she was awarded a QSM.

Jan is joined by Ruth Jackson and Trish Deans, who both have proven track records of community involvement and advocacy across a wide range of issues.

Heart of the Shore are committed to standing up for our communities, ensuring your voices are truly hears and acted on. We're dedicated to putting the 'local' back in 'local government'.
