Ella Kumar
Puketāpapa Local Board Member

As a current Local Board member with 12 years’ experience, I bring a wealth of local government expertise in arts and culture, library, sport and recreation, economic development, and planning.

I continue to advocate for action-focused, fair outcomes that deliver for all residents, pushing for smart development that maximises open space and balances the needs of community to help Puketāpapa thrive.

Community is at the heart of everything I do and believe in, with twenty-plus years’ experience on boards of trustees, including Mt Roskill Primary and Grammar. I am currently on the Roskill Together board, am founder/Chair of the inaugural Puketāpapa Business Association, a JP and marriage-celebrant. Having studied health sciences, I work every day to help people achieve healthy lives.

We need a local board that genuinely keeps the community at the heart of all its decisions.
