KCDC Cr Elliott Acutely embarrassed by Councils Actions

Media Statement KCDC Cr Elliott Acutely embarrassed by Councils Actions.

20th February 2013

Re councillor Gavin Welsh's press statement that 'staff were doing a job that elected members asked them to do. '

It is a shock that Cr Welsh seriously believes that staff were asking elected members to decide whether or not to prosecute the residents when they first gave us a briefing on the Oriwa Court case 2 weeks ago. KCDC staff had already begun legal proceedings some months ago.

I am acutely embarrassed by the actions of Council.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
