Luella Linaker

Manurewa Local Board

Luella Linaker loves Manurewa. She was raised here by her dad, left after highschool, and returned 17 years ago to raise her girls with her husband in his family home. They have a suburban orchard and share their fruit, eggs, and veges with family and friends. Food sovereignty, environmental responsibility, safety and kindness are super important to her.

In 2020 and 2021, Luella supported senior residents at Manurewa's council flats during the lockdowns with food parcels and support. She served as Chair of the Manurewa Community Trust for 3 years and previously as Co-Chair of Oxfam Aotearoa. Luella is serving on The Pride Project Board and Beautification Trust and is a member of the Manurewa Māori Women's Welfare League.

Luella’s extensive knowledge of and relationships with staff at Auckland Council, having worked there for 9 years, will enable her with her team to serve Manurewa residents and businesses. #LoveManurewa

Luella Linaker loves Manurewa. Luella grew up and is now raising her family here. She brings a wealth of governance experience, founded on values of kindness, fairness and transparency that came from being raised by her dad in Manurewa. Her background is strategy and she has successfully established and run a multi-million dollar grants programme. Relationships are her strength.

WLT plays a critical role in growing the sustainability of the many voluntary and community organisations in Manurewa. Luella will support WLT to continue to grow to be more than just a funder making strategic investment decisions. She will champion collaborating with other funders and organisations to support the needs and aspirations of the often unseen fabric that holds our community together.

I’m standing with Joseph Allan, Ally Billaney, Andrew Lesa, Joe Lukupa and Kriss Rapana. Together we will make a difference with our combined experience, passion and heart. Vote #LoveManurewa.
