Half the Environment Canterbury council is standing again

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It will be the first fully democratic Environment Canterbury (ECan) election for 12 years but only one councillor sacked by the National government in 2010 is keen to stand again.

Nominations for candidates for the seven regional constituencies closed on Friday yesterday at midday, with 39 received for the 14 positions at the council table.

Six of the 12 current councillors are standing again, but Rik Tindall is the only member of the regional council dismissed more than nine years ago willing to have another go.

BUYING MANNERS for Neighbourly BUY SELLS ..my experience

Kay from Papanui

Was selling an item for $20 on neighbourly. A person said great will collect it at 6.30pm. Never turns up and when I phoned at 7.30pm oh I’m home now so won’t be coming!!! Maybe will give it a miss!!! I said why did you not message me.... oh sorry.😈A heavy item moved out ready for pick up very frustrating time wasters. If you say you are buying something....pick it up at the agreed time or contact the seller with different arrangements. Happened several times, I think as no feedback like trade me often buyers just dont care if they muck sellers around.
Same sort of people have this problem of, time means nothing, or your word means nothing,
.Must just be old fashioned... 😎. What’s your experience.
We just withdrew it too much hassle.!!!!!
