Jenny Brash can now watch over pro­ceed­ings in Porirua City Coun­cil’s de­bat­ing cham­ber with­out be­ing there in per­son.

Ms Brash, mayor of the city for four terms and a councillor since 1983, had her of­fi­cial por­trait un­veiled last Wed­nes­day night.

It has been placed next to paint­ings of pre­vi­ous may­ors Whit­ford Brown and John Burke.

Darcy Ni­cholas, PCC’s gen­eral man­ager of com­mu­nity ser­vices, said Kapiti artist Ken Hunt cap­tured per­fectly ‘‘Jenny’s per­son­al­ity, en­ergy and warmth’’.

Ms Brash told the new coun­cil it was an hon­our to be placed in such ‘‘au­gust com­pany’’.

‘‘I did en­joy my time [at the por­trait sit­ting], it was not as painful as I thought it would be. I will be able to keep an eye on things in here now.’’

New por­trait: In keep­ing with the tra­di­tion be­stowed on for­mer may­ors, a por­trait of Jenny Brash was un­veiled in the coun­cil cham­ber last week.
