The Mayor of Lower Hutt

Find out about Mayor Campbell Barry and how you can book him for your next event.

Campbell Barry

Campbell Barry was elected to the Wainuiomata Community Board in 2010, and served as Wainuiomata’s ward councillor for two terms before being elected Mayor in October 2019.

He was born and raised in Lower Hutt, and attended the local primary, intermediate and high school in Wainuiomata. He lives there with his wife Laura, and is actively involved in the local community – playing club cricket and refereeing rugby.

As a Councillor, Campbell advocated for a range of issues, including the implementation of the Living Wage, ensuring effective spending of public money, and genuine engagement with local communities in decision making.

Upon being elected Mayor in 2019, Campbell said that he would lead a Council that got back to basics – investing in the assets and services that support all of Lower Hutt’s people to thrive. His priorities include improving transport in the Hutt, fronting up to the housing crisis, building infrastructure required for growth, and protecting the environment.
