DOES THE ORC’S STRATEGIC APPROACH REFLECT THE REGION’S ISSUES?
ORC has a history of extreme conservatism in activities across all of Otago, and in recent times has been deficient in its engagement with communities across a number of sectors. I will collaborate with the other Dunstan elected members to ensure strategic direction is strongly focused on the regions issues.
The problem is the implementation of their strategies. Strategies need to be founded on good science have buy-in from the community, then ensure the strategies are correctly resourced, and hold management accountable.
