Thanks Coromandel for backing me, says incoming Mayor

Thanks Coromandel for backing me, says incoming Mayor

"Thank you to the people of the Coromandel. It's so great to be back," says incoming Mayor Sandra Goudie.

"I loved the campaign and getting out and about to meet everyone. Thank you for believing in me. This is a clear win for the people of the Coromandel, and I will do my darndest to make sure the people of the Coromandel are the focus. Because that's what it's all about."

Mayor Sandra also thanked those who put their names forward for election and those who were unsuccessful, for taking an active part in our democracy that was hard won by our forebears.

"My congratulations to the successful candidates and I know we will all strive to work hard and represent our people with dignity and respect," she says.

The promise to hit the ground running has been kept with Mayor Sandra catching up with constituents and attending an exhibition at Hauraki House in Coromandel with returning Councillor Tony Brljevich.


The new Mayor's immediate priorities for her first week on the job include talking with key staff and to get the diary cracking so she can keep track of all the meetings and up and coming activities she will be attending in the district as our Mayor.

Mayor Sandra is looking forward to bringing together a fresh mix of newly elected people with a range of experience and to enhance the role of community boards within Council.

"So, folks, don't forget, my door and my mind are open. And if I forget... remind me! I want this to be a time we can all enjoy," says Mayor Sandra.
