The dust is set­tling on this year’s lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tion and the four can­di­dates to rep­re­sent Mata­mata have been elected. First-time coun­cil­lors James Sains­bury, Kevin Tap­pin, Adri­enne Wil­cock and in­cum­bent Brian Hunter are about to be­gin a new three-year term on the Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil. Over the com­ing months we’ll be quizzing the new coun­cil­lors to hear about what their goals and am­bi­tions are. We’ll be keen to hear how they in­tend to work with coun­cil­lors from the Mor­rinsville and Te Aroha wards and with other public rep­re­sen­ta­tives around the Waikato. For­mal­i­ties will fol­low shortly to of­fi­cially no­tify their sta­tus as coun­cil­lors for the ward. Some of the chal­lenges that lay ahead for the new coun­cil­lors in­clude the pro­posal to build a new in­door sport com­plex for Mata­mata and the de­vel­op­ment of the new civic cen­tre to name a few. We look for­ward to mark­ing their progress.
