Record number of nominations for election


Nominations closed for the Central Lakes Trust elections with a record number of candidates putting their name forward for election to the board.

“25 candidates from across the central lakes region have been nominated to stand for the board,” says Chief Executive, Susan Finlay. “Since the commencement of the trust in 2000, there has never been a larger number of nominees.”

The Board of Central Lakes Trust will be comprised of five publicly elected trustees alongside three appointed trustees. The term of office is three years and the maximum period a trustee can serve is nine years.

“This year will see considerable change in the board members for the trust, as four of our trustees are mandated to retire, having served on the board for nine years, and another opts to stand-down, leaving five community-elected board positions to be filled,” she says. “The last time a large number of trustees were mandated to retire was back in 2010, when 21 candidates stood for election. Comparatively 14 stood in 2013, and 12 in 2016.”

“With plenty of nominees to choose from it will be the community’s turn to step up and have their say on who they would prefer to represent them and serve on the trust for the next three years. It shouldn’t be taken lightly either,” she says.

The trust plays an important role in our community, having distributed over $99 million back into the community through grants to charitable causes since its inception in 2000. It has assets totalling over $388 million driving an annual grants budget of approximately $9 million.

The following persons have been nominated as candidates for the 2019 Central Lakes Trust triennial election of trustees:

BREEN Lindsay HOLDEN Dave

Gordon Campbell: On Wage Cuts, And The Listener’s Demise

Various levels of across the board wage cuts – 10%? 15% ?- are being mooted for workers in some of our larger firms, in order to help the likes of Fletchers, Mediaworks etc survive the Covid-19 crisis. It is extraordinary that unions should be having to explain to employers (and to the public) just how unfairly the burden of such a response would fall. Basically, if you’re on a salary in six figures, a 10-15% haircut can still be worn fairly lightly. If you’re employed at or below the median wage, losing 10% of your income can be a hammer blow...
