Independent Citizens is an association of candidates for Christchurch City Council and ECan who offer strong leadership, sensible management of ratepayers’ money and assets, and the skills to deliver basic services more effectively. 

Officially called the Independent Citizens Association Inc, Independent Citizens does not run based on party politics, and represents independent and solely Christchurch-focused citizens wanting to improve their communities. We work to strengthen the Council’s commercial focus and business friendly approach to balance the social and environmental objectives

When elected, we work together with our neighbours to ensure quality services are delivered, without duplication and waste.

Our team offers leadership and common sense, while being focused on the needs of local people. We work to make our communities modern, affordable and prosperous.

 “Independent Citizens is Christchurch-focused and committed to improving our city for all citizens.”
