Panel ver­dict Ac­ces­si­bil­ity: Very good Ef­fec­tive­ness: Very good Work ethic: Very good Re­spon­sive­ness: Very good Ac­tive or re­ac­tive: Ac­tive Well re­spected by the panel, Mr Latham was re­garded as a hard worker and a sen­si­ble voice among the coun­cil­lors. ‘‘He un­der­stands what Porirua is and could be’’, ‘‘is re­lat­able and works eas­ily with res­i­dents over their con­cerns’’ and ‘‘ a good lis­tener, with an open mind’’, said the panel. His sport and teach­ing back­ground were seen as hold­ing him in good stead. Ac­tive or re­ac­tive: Re­ac­tive

Mr Poutoa was seen as some­one who could make plenty of noise around the coun­cil ta­ble, but had been largely quiet th­ese past three years, pos­si­bly ow­ing to fac­tors out­side the coun­cil.

De­scrip­tions such as ‘‘means well’’, ‘‘po­lite, will­ing to lis­ten’’ and ‘‘in­tel­li­gent’’ from the panel were over­shad­owed by ‘‘ could do bet­ter’’, ‘‘scrap­ping with Litea [Ah Hoi] has con­sumed his po­ten­tial’’ and ‘‘has been dis­ap­point­ing’’.

Mr Shep­pard was de­scribed as a ‘‘bean counter, but that’s not a bad thing’’, and a good lis­tener who is pas­sion­ate about Porirua.

One pan­elist, how­ever, thought he ‘‘could pull his socks up a bit’’ and might be in for a fight for his seat now that the North­ern ward is to lose a coun­cil­lor.

Af­ter a poor mid-term re­port card, Mr Seiuli was seen as be­ing much more ac­tive in the sec­ond half of the tri­en­nium.

May be strug­gling still with the work­load of be­ing a coun­cil­lor.

Three pan­elists did not know any­thing about him, but he was seen as be­ing an ad­vo­cate for As­cot Park and some­one who was im­prov­ing.

‘‘Has a good at­ti­tude,’’ said one of the pan­elists.
