LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS

Jan from Ebdentown

MEET THE CANDIDATES
I see in The Leader this week, that five of the Councillors standing for re-election are the same five that failed to keep their oath to serve and represent the people of Upper Hutt regardless of their personal feelings towards the citizen or the nature of the issue, promising to facilitate a citizen or group to navigate and understand Council processes and represent them and their issues to Council.
COUNCILLORS - Chris Carson – Blair Griffith – Paul Lambert – Glenn MacArthur – Dave Wheeler – have all blatantly failed in their sworn duty.
They are, in my direct experience, never to be trusted, a vote for them is to vote for people who abuse and misuse the trust and power invested in them. They only serve themselves and the Incumbent Mayor.
It is time for new faces, younger faces, diverse people, who have serving Upper Hutt at heart, people with progressive 21st century awareness.
Tracy Ultra, is a person who is proactive in the community and stands up and fights for the rights of Upper Hutt. She is both visible and accessible, she has my vote, as does Helen Swales and Angela McLeod.
I will research the other candidates and make my choices accordingly.
What is assured is that I will not vote for the five oath-breakers.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Porirua & Thorndon

"Kia ora – James Lough from New World Porirua here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Tohu Single Vineyard Riesling and for many reasons! First, it’s delicious with a zingy acidity. Secondly, it has a great story - all wine should start a conversation and the people behind this wine and their governance of the land give you plenty of that. Lastly, the wine sums up what the New World Wine Awards is all about: helping customers discover new wines that surprise and delight.” And Bob Dunkerly from New World Thorndon’s pick is the Stoneleigh Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. “It’s an excellent wine, with delicious stone fruit flavours. It’s very approachable for anyone wanting to give Chardonnay a try.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
