An Open Communication to Cr Paul Hudson

Councillor Paul Hudson
Dunedin City Council


Having now read the Warren Larsen Report entitled “Governance review of all companies in which Dunedin City Council and/or Dunedin City Holdings Limited has an equity interest of 50% or more” it is clear that you, despite a number of denials you have made over a period of time, have been compromised by the positions you hold as a Director of DCHL, a number of companies within DCHL and as a City Councillor.

It is time that you accepted the findings of this independent review.

I call upon you to immediately tender your resignation as a Board member of all companies associated with DCHL and also as a Dunedin City Councillor.

Russell Garbutt
