7 Councillors Not Present for Governance Training Paid For By Ratepayers. UPDATED

Unacceptable ratepayers money is squandered like this

Cathy Casey, Penny Hulse, Arthur Anae, Chris Fletcher, Chris Darby, Denise Krum, George Wood, Dick Quax, Bill Cashmore and Calum Penrose. The Mayor came for afternoon.

IF you name is mentioned thank you for showing up to the ratepayer funded Governance Training provided by the NZ Institute of Directors

If your name above is not mentioned and not Councillor Penny Webster who is overseas there better be a reason why you were not there.

Update: Councillor Linda Cooper was at Women In Leadership training today which clashed with the Governance training. 

Given the Governance training was done by the Institute of Directors (thus high-end) and costing the ratepayer some coin at the same I am not particularly thrilled eight of our elected representatives at the Governing Body no-showed especially the ones that critique Council governance frequently like a certain Cameron Brewer and Mike Lee. .

I am also told that the trainer who was from the Institute was not impressed by their tardiness either.

It is simple.

We elect you and you go TO your training that we pay for. If not well maybe we need to have some byelections as a more gentle reminder of ratepayer expectations and Governing Body accountability.

  1. Who were the eight non attending, because I am looking at my list for a tick or non tick at the next election.
    Remember your pocket money comes out of my pocket.
