Resignation of Waitematā Local Board member Sarah Trotman

Dee Sims from Waitematā Local Board

Waitematā Local Board member Sarah Trotman last week resigned her position on the board, providing her resignation in a letter to Chief Executive Jim Stabback on 9 October 2021.

Board chair Richard Northey acknowledges Ms Trotman’s resignation and her contribution to the board for the last two years.

“Sarah did some great work with local businesses in her economic development portfolio, particularly in helping them access mentoring and advice during the first COVID-19 lockdown last year.

“She has also represented her constituency with passion throughout our board’s planning and decision-making processes.

“We respect Sarah’s decision to resign from the board and wish her well in her future endeavours.”

The implications of Ms Trotman’s departure, including whether the vacancy left by her departure will be filled, will be decided by the board at its meeting on Tuesday 19 October.

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
