South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

It’s very dis­ap­point­ing to see that so few peo­ple have put their hands up to run for lo­cal coun­cil so far.

If you want to make a real dif­fer­ence to your com­mu­nity, this is the job to do it.

I find that so many peo­ple like to sit back and com­plain about coun­cil and what they are do­ing.

But so few are will­ing to front up and get in­volved them­selves.

I echo Mayor Sin­clair’s words when he says it’s one of the most im­por­tant things that one can do ‘‘serve their com­mu­nity’’.

So if you’ve ever thought about be­ing a coun­cil­lor, or even our new mayor, get that nom­i­na­tion in!

We’ll be check­ing in again next week and we hope to see that the num­bers of nom­i­nee has in­creased.

Mean­while, re­porter Luke will be back at the Sweet Rose on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

So don’t for­get to drop by and say hi.

I’m also just a phone call or email away. So don’t be a stranger.
