Carolynne Stone Reappointed

Carolynne Stone Reappointed

Carolynne Stone has been reappointed Deputy Mayor of Waitakere City.

Ms Stone, who was also Deputy Mayor during the last term of Waitakere City Council, was unanimously endorsed at last night’s inaugural meeting.

At last night’s meeting- held at the new Trusts Stadium in Henderson- the City’s other 13 Councillors and community board members were also officially “sworn-in”.

From Oratia, Ms Stone represents the Waitakere Ward and was first elected in 1992.

Mayor Bob Harvey says the two have an excellent relationship and he is looking forward to another three years of working together. “Carolynne is highly regarded by her colleagues here in Waitakere and also commands huge respect around the region”, he says.

“Regionally she is one of the key figures in pushing for improved passenger transport to solve Auckland’s traffic problems and she will continue to lead that charge. Here in Waitakere, the Deputy Mayor is not so much a figurehead as elsewhere, because over the years Carolynne has really made it a working role.”

Also at the meeting, Councillors were appointed to each of the City’s Community Boards. Those appointments are:

Massey Community Board: Councillors Peter Chan, Warren Flaunty and Linda Cooper. Henderson Community Board: Councillors Assid Corban and Ewen Gilmour. Waitakere Community Board: Councillors Pat Booth, Penny Hulse and Carolynne Stone. New Lynn Community Board: Councillors Janet Clews and Ross Clow.

Appointments to external bodies were confirmed as:

Aotea Centre Board of Management: Mayor Bob Harvey Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group: Councillor Derek Battersby Auckland War Memorial Museum and Museum of Transport and Technology (M.O.T.A.T): Councillors Vanessa Neeson and Pat Booth Hauraki Gulf Forum: Councillor Peter Chan
Auckland Regional Council Passenger Transport Sub-committee: Councillor Carolynne Stone Auckland Regional Council Land Transport Committee: Councillor Carolynne Stone Auckland Regional Growth Forum: Councillor Carolynne Stone

The new Council also approved its committee structure for the next three years. In line with the last Council term, there will be three main committees, which all Councillors are members of. The main committees are City Development, Planning and Regulatory and Finance and Operational Performance.

A new sub-committee- the Arts and Events Special Committee- will monitor arts related activity and city-wide events. That will be chaired by Councillor Judy Lawley.

Councillor Derek Battersby was appointed as the Council’s representative to the Local Government New Zealand Zone One meetings.

Gordon Campbell: On The Sharma Chameleon


Gather round the camp-fire, folks. Let me tell you about the Ice Age era of the fourth Labour government, when mean, sabre-toothed tigers like Richard Prebble ranged at large within the Labour caucus. A being so mean and fierce that - legend has it – he once made Michael Cullen cry. So while Labour MP Dr Gaurav Sharma may (or may not) have suffered cruelly at the hands of his colleagues one thing is clear: former Labour whip Kieran McAnulty is no Richard Prebble. If you can be bullied by the likes of Kieran McAnulty, you might need to have your hand held while you cross the road in the political traffic...
