Auckland City Harbour News - - FRONT PAGE - ELESHA ED­MONDS AND CA­TRIN OWEN

There is noth­ing very new about the newly-elected coun­cil­lors and lo­cal board mem­bers for cen­tral Auck­land.

While there are a few new faces scat­tered amongst the lo­cal boards, the rest of the mem­bers and coun­cil­lors re­main un­changed.

Chris­tine Fletcher (Com­mu­ni­ties & Res­i­dents) and Cathy Casey (City Vi­sion) re­turn as coun­cil­lors for the Al­bert-Eden-Roskill ward for an­other term. The pair have held onto their coun­cil roles since the po­si­tions were formed in 2010.

Mike Lee, an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date but en­dorsed by City Vi­sion, was also re-elected as Waitem­ata and Gulf ward coun­cil­lor. The veteran politi­cian al­most didn’t stand again for coun­cil, how­ever he said he had un­fin­ished busi­ness and went on to win the seat by 1042 votes.

The cen­tral Auck­land lo­cal boards fol­lowed a sim­i­lar trend: Cham­bers (City Vi­sion) fol­low­ing closely be­hind.

New­com­ers in­clude Adri­ana Christie (City Vi­sion), Richard Northey (City Vi­sion) and Mark Davey (Auck­land Fu­ture). While Jonathan Good (Auck­land Fu­ture) nearly missed out but man­aged to beat former mem­ber Vernon Tava (City Vi­sion) by 65 votes. The fi­nal re­sult will be con­firmed on Oc­to­ber 13.
