MAYOR STICKS WITH STATUS QUO
Newly-elected Central Otago District Mayor Tim Cadogan wants to stick with the status quo and keep Neil Gillespie on as deputy mayor.
Cadogan will be recommending to councillors the appointment of councillor Neil Gillespie to the role of deputy mayor at its next meeting later this month.
Gillespie has held the role of deputy mayor since 2010.
"Neil plainly comes with all the qualities, qualifications and experience any mayor would want in a deputy," Cadogan said. "He is a man I can relate to and I am sure we will work well together. I discussed the appointment last week when I met individually with all my Councillors and my recommendation has their universal backing."
