LITEA AH HOI
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.
