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.
