Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Peter Haynes has come out on top de­spite nearly miss­ing out on a seat on the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board.

Haynes only just man­aged to scrape past 22-year-old Brodie Hoare by 96 votes to se­cure a seat on the board.

But his chances of again tak­ing the reins as chair­per­son came down to the votes of his fel­low board mem­bers rather than the public.

That vote went in his favour at the board’s in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony on Mon­day night.

Haynes will now en­ter his third term as chair­per­son of the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board with Glenda Fryer again serv­ing as deputy.

"We have worked hard over the last six years so there is a lot in the pipe­line," Haynes says. move that in­volved any ten­sion. "It wasn’t a sur­prise, it wasn’t a coup," Fairey says.

"I’m very happy to take that role as the board saw fit to have trust in me to carry it out," he says.

De­spite a new sea­son for Puke­ta­papa, Doig says he doesn’t see any change in di­rec­tion for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.
