Hutt 20/20: A New Team Launches Onto Hutt City's Local Body Scene

A new team on the Hutt City local body scene, Hutt 20/20, was launched on 1st March 2001, at the Hardwick Smith Lounge in Lower Hutt's Belmont Reserve.

Bringing together Positive Focus and a number of other interest groups, the group will be standing candidates for this year's local body elections. As well as being represented on Wellington Regional Council by Councillor Dick Werry and on Hutt City Council by Councillor Scott Dalziell, Hutt 20/20 has representatives on community boards and ward committees.

"The name of the group indicates that we are looking ahead to the year 2020 and our commitment to be clear sighted about the needs of our community," Councillor Dalziell told those gathered at the group's launch. "We will be campaigning for democracy, community, accountability and leadership in local government at the elections in October."

"By the year 2020, we want to see a revived sense of community throughout the city which gives effect to the Strategic Plan, to make Hutt City a great place to live, work and play," he went on.

"Hutt 20/20 will be fiscally responsible in managing the expenditure of the city. We undertake to be accountable and transparent in decision making. We believe constant two way communication between the community and the Council is essential for good decision making. With voters' support at the October elections, Hutt 20/20 will encourage people to become more actively involved through Community Boards and the Annual Plan process."

"It's time for a new style of leadership in the Council," said Councillor Dalziell who will be standing for Mayor. "We intend to make best use of the skills of all elected member in the day-to-day work of the Council. The current practice, creating a majority group by distributing committee chairs regardless of ability does not work in the best interests of the city."

"Hutt 20/20 will be promoting policies that develop a strong social fabric in our city. We deserve better than the disasters over the proposed sale of Kilmister, the Hutt Park fiasco and the ongoing dissent over community boards."

"Roads, footpaths and sewers enhance the quality of life in the city and account for a large part of the Council's expenditure. Too much emphasis on debt or the level of rates however will severely limit the vision of the city." Councillor Dalziell ended by calling on supporters to make sure they go out and vote Hutt 20/20 in October.
