NICK LEGGETT

Kapi-Mana News - - COUNCILLOR SURVEY -

SUM­MARY Leggett has again topped the charts, with his rat­ings in the five cat­e­gories be­ing as­sessed in the 80s. He fin­ished well ahead of sec­on­dranked Izzy Ford. The panel de­scribed him as the face of the coun­cil and a leader for Porirua. ‘‘He’s bril­liant and he lis­tens,’’ said one pan­elist. ‘‘Peo­ple will knock him be­cause he’s at the front, but he has the best in­ter­ests of Porirua at heart,’’ said an­other. The only crit­i­cism he faced was of his de­sire for a su­per-city po­ten­tially dis­tract­ing him from his civic du­ties.

Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties: mayor; chair­man of the chief ex­ec­u­tive’s em­ploy­ment com­mit­tee and the fi­nance com­mit­tee.

To­tal salary: $109,432

Meet­ing at­ten­dance: 90.3%

So­cial me­dia: 2756 Face­book friends. 791 Twit­ter fol­low­ers. SUM­MARY The deputy mayor in her sec­ond term, Cof­fey was con­sid­ered up-front and hon­est and a dili­gent worker. Her big pres­ence on so­cial me­dia gave an in­sight into her ‘‘be­ing a real per­son’’, said one pan­elist. She has a solid fo­cus on her own com­mu­nity and Porirua in gen­eral and was find­ing her voice around the coun­cil ta­ble. One pan­elist thought she was ‘‘on Nick’s coat-tails a bit’’, but made her pres­ence felt strongly on is­sues she be­lieved in.
