I am a lawyer and a scientist with a heart for the community. I have experience in research, tertiary student support, equity advice, property and commercial law, and governance in the community sector. I have a Bachelor of Science and an Honours degree in Law, with a focus on policy. I am a Trustee of Dress for Success New Plymouth, serve on the Council of the New Zealand Law Society Taranaki branch and have held many volunteer roles, including being a volunteer at Taranaki Retreat. I am currently in my second year of studying Te Reo Māori.
In June 2019, I resigned from my role as a commercial and property lawyer to run for New Plymouth District Council. I’m serious about this – I’m determined that, through all the changes ahead of us, New Plymouth will continue to be a place we are proud of.
I will bring all of these attributes to the role of Councillor, and I will dedicate myself to the future of our region and our community.
Amanda has a maturity beyond her years and a proven track record of achievement. She makes things happen. Council needs more bright young minds around the table and Amanda Clinton-Gohdes fits the bill admirably
New Plymouth District Councillor 2015-2019
