“Wellington’s Mayor must lead on this and that is my commitment.” Mrs Coughlan said the costs of this infrastructure would be around $1 billion. “What I would like to do is work with the government to get our roading projects over the line.” The city councillor has represented the Onslow-Western Ward for three terms. Since her re-election in 2010 Mrs Coughlan has led the city’s economic development strategy as economic portfolio leader and served as chair of the economic growth and arts committee. Mrs Coughlan founded Silvereye Communications, which provides public relations and government advice to public and private clients, in 2008 and said her experience as a business owner would help her in

"There's no point growing our port and airport capacity if we can't get freight and passengers to them." The mother-of-six said she wants Wellington to be a city where her children have the opportunity to get world-class jobs. “We need to future proof the city to accommodate growth.”
