Massey Community Board Elects New Chairman

The Massey Community Board has elected Graeme Barnard as its new chairman following the resignation of Andrew Good from the role.

Mr Good stood down as chairman due to increasing business commitments, but will continue representing Massey as a board member.

Mr Barnard, a former civil engineer, says he is really looking forward to his new role.

“This is an amazing opportunity, and while I feel sorry for the resigning chairman, Andrew Good, who absolutely loved the job, his leaving the post has opened up an amazing opportunity for me,” Barnard says.

“It’s an amazing ward, and the challenge is with me to provide leadership to the Massey Community Board,” he says.

Mr Good agrees.

“It’s a great board, a great team,” he says.

“I chose to stand down due to my increasing work obligations and the role of chairman deserves someone who has more time to devote to the role but I’ve really appreciated all the support I have received from my colleagues in my time as chairman – their support has made the job a pleasure.”
