Kapi-Mana News - - COUNCILLOR SURVEY -

SUM­MARY The panel felt Ah Hoi’s pres­ence around the coun­cil ta­ble and in the com­mu­nity had slipped. ‘‘Is mak­ing up the num­bers,’’ was one pan­elist’s view. ‘‘Not as vis­i­ble as she once was, but still avail­able to her com­mu­nity,’’ was an­other. It was thought she was far more re­ac­tive than proac­tive. Ah Hoi’s rat­ing in terms of ef­fec­tive­ness, look­ing back at re­cent coun­cil­lor sur­veys, has slipped markedly. First elected: 2001 in the Eastern ward.

Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties: chair­woman of the Porirua li­cens­ing com­mit­tee.

To­tal salary: $32,600

Meet­ing at­ten­dance: 78.6%

So­cial me­dia: 3952 Face­book friends (pri­vate ac­count). 10 Twit­ter fol­low­ers. SUM­MARY Baker fin­ished in the low­er­mid­dle sec­tion of the pack, with one pan­elist say­ing she had a fo­cus on her ward is­sues rather than city-wide. ‘‘She may be do­ing a lot of work be­hind the scenes, but Anita is toe­ing the line on most things,’’ was one com­ment. ‘‘Mid­dle of the road, but when she does find her voice, she can be as­sertive and we need to see more of that,’’ was an­other. Two pan­elists had not heard of her.
