Taupo Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - DANIEL HUTCHIN­SON

‘‘Our line-up of coun­cil­lors is a very strong one with an ar­ray of ta­lent and ex­pe­ri­ence.’’

Taupo¯ District Mayor David Tre­wavas has an­nounced the estab­lish­ment of port­fo­lios for Taupo¯ District coun­cil­lors to give the com­mu­nity a point of con­tact for spe­cific ar­eas.

Deputy Mayor Rosie Har­vey gains re­spon­si­bil­ity for com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, with first term coun­cil­lor Chris­tine Rankin draw­ing on her cor­po­rate ex­pe­ri­ence to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and busi­ness.

Rosanne Jol­lands will over­see growth plans and strat­egy. Sport and re­cre­ation goes to Anna Park, who will also over­see the youth port­fo­lio for the district’s young peo­ple.

John Boddy picks up re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for older mem­bers of the com­mu­nity and John Wil­liamson is the en­vi­ron­ment port­fo­lio-holder.

Arts and cul­ture is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Barry Hick­ling, while Man­gakino coun­cil­lor Kirsty Trueman will hold re­spon­si­bil­ity for health and ed­u­ca­tion. Tu­rangi coun­cil­lor Tan­gonui Kingi will head the cul­tural port­fo­lio.

Mr Tre­wavas said giv­ing coun­cil­lors port­fo­lio re­spon­si­bil­i­ties helped give the com­mu­nity a point of con­tact who is in­vested in a cer­tain sec­tor of the district.

‘‘Our line-up of coun­cil­lors is a very strong one with an ar­ray of ta­lent and ex­pe­ri­ence, so it makes sense to cap­i­talise on that.’’
