Olivia Witney
Candidate for Albert-Eden Local Board (Owairaka)

I’m an athlete with over ten years’ experience in journalism and communications working for high-performing teams, including The Blues and the NZ Olympic Committee. I know the value of hard-work and determination.

I’ve run competitively for 20 years, have eight NZ Championship medals, and have won Round the Bays five times. I studied journalism on an athletics scholarship at a New York university. I’ve seen what it takes for cities to thrive.

I know the streets of Owairaka well. Recently married, I own an apartment in Waterview and have enjoyed living in Albert-Eden for the past eight years. I currently work for a local non-profit that equips young adults to flourish and serve their communities.

I’ll bring fresh energy to the local board. My focus: protecting green spaces, safety in our neighbourhoods, sensible transport and parking solutions, and a new Mt. Albert pool complex.
