COUNCILLOR

LARRY BALDOCK

Capable, Strategic Leadership

I am committed to representing the needs and aspirations of the people of Tauranga, enabling our
City to thrive and develop to its fullest potential.

I have a wife and 3 children, with 8 grandchildren, and understand the role and importance of families, extended families and businesses in building a great community. 

 

I am a Tauranga local, having been raised by a solo mum in a family of 6 from Gate Pa, I loved growing up in this wonderful city.

 

After having lived overseas for a number of years working with a Not for Profit organisation, and have travelled to over 40 countries, I returned with my family to Tauranga in 1996 to use my unique experience and perspective by getting involved in local and national Politics. 

 

Since then, I have served on the Tauranga City Council twice, and as an MP in Parliament for 3 years. 

Being involved in the shaping of our city and nation is my passion. 

I have a passion for politics and believe that those who represent the people should do just that. 

 

To that end, during my time in Politics, I have also led two nationwide citizen's initiated referendums. 

My goal as a councillor has always been to represent the diverse needs of the people in the city - both the private and business communities, to see our city develop to its fullest potential. 

I bring my experiences in both local and national government to the job and a determination to work hard to see Tauranga thrive.

I have been a no-nonsense councillor who has worked hard on your behalf. 

I will be willing to advocate for things that are good for the city and will not back down from a challenge nor be afraid to voice my opinion or stand up for what I believe is right in Council. 

​I have a good record of working with others which is needed to get things done on Council.
