Kate Joblin


My principal place of residence is in the Whanganui District area.

I am a Chartered Accountant and have served six years on Whanganui District Council and previously on the DHB for eleven years, seven as chair.

Whanganui has much to offer as a wonderful place to live. For our community to thrive, Council must look forward, work with others and have a logical strategy to deliver great results.

Pretty much we all want the same things; to live in a vibrant, safe community with good employment, great facilities and neighbourhoods – somewhere we belong. My proven record as Councillor, DHB chair and board work in schools and community organisations, plus having an accounting business, gives me the skills to strengthen the Council team.

I grew up here and with my husband have raised six children. With aging parents and young grandchildren here, I understand and am passionate about the importance of a thriving, safe community.

My skills will help take Whanganui forward.
