ODT: ‘Liberal’ council spending a worry
Cr Andrew Noone is concerned about how “liberal” the Dunedin City Council has been when it comes to spending ratepayer money. He made the comments during pre-draft annual plan considerations yesterday […] Cr Noone said he was worried the council had been too willing to increase spending during the annual plan process. “It does make me nervous we have approached the last day and a-half … in a fairly liberal way in terms of adding things in. I’m nervous … the headroom that we have is disappearing rapidly without having considered the majority of core services.”

Long-serving councillor Andrew Noone says he is “highly unlikely” to seek re-election to the Dunedin City Council. The six-term councillor has represented the Waikouaiti Coast-Chalmers ward for 18 years, but yesterday told the Otago Daily Times it was time for fresh blood.

    Andrew Noone has been the epitome of a steady, unassuming councillor, averse to the ‘histrionics’ of recent times. He does his homework, looks askance at the Mayor’s (current and former) conduct on many issues and has decided it’s time to bow out. Would that we had a replacement of similar calibre on offer.

      I’ve nothing against him though would have appreciated him being a bit shouty-Sam about the Council & mayoral looney tunes, there has been too much tactful “not in front of the children” i.e. public. I trust he’ll make a good contribution to ORC. What I don’t like is the apparent ODT free boost to his chances by that large profile of him in his role as EX-councillor, at the time he’s a CURRENT candidate for a related role – same voters, same (but more) land & waterways etc.
      There’s a lot of overlap.

    Andrew Noone is a thoroughly decent man who unwisely voted for the stadium all along the way. He did not do due diligence on that issue.
    At least he did the right thing as a commissioner in rejecting the Sing Song Hotel.
