Lucille [Lucie] Rutherfurd

Lucie is a third-generation farmer from the Awhitu Peninsula with two sons, a grandson and family who still live and work in the area.

Lucie has always been passionate about the environment and has spent 19

years working in fields where her passions can be realised. She was a founding member of the Awhitu Landcare Group, spent 9 years in Local Government from 1998 to 2007. Four and a half years as a Community Board Member and four and a half years as a Councillor for the Waiuku/Awhitu ward.

After a 3-year break Lucie has for the past 10 years, filled the role of Resource Management Officer for local Iwi Ngati Tamaoho. The area of coverage in this role is extensive from Tamaki Makaurau [Auckland] to the Waikato Region. Her role has been to work with Government Officials, Councils [Regional and Local], Transport Agencies, Horticulture, Farmers and Developers to achieve a sustainable environmental outcome.

Living on the Awhitu Peninsula Lucie is well aware of the importance of local communities and local resources and supporting these communities. Corporate takeovers have not always seen the best outcomes for our local farmers, producers and retailers.
