Central ward questioned
By Chris Morris
Dunedin could consider scrapping its central ward – and even the need for some councillors – as part of a shake-up of its local body electoral system. However, exactly what – if anything – will replace the current arrangements remains up for debate, as the council searches for panel members to consider the alternatives. Dunedin’s representation review was required by law this term, but councillors at yesterday’s full council meeting voted to extend the deadline for recruiting panel members until November 3.

‘Super ward’ + Stevenson chasing votes over apology (ODT)

Super ward supported – now it’s over to the public
By David Loughrey
Plans for a “super ward” that could give voters a far greater say on which councillors represent the city have been supported by the Dunedin City Council. It is now the turn of the city’s voters to have their say on the issue before a final ruling is made.

Stevenson is prone to abstain from voting when the going gets tough; she isn’t backing the super ward idea. This councillor has served a long term and not picked up any chairing or senior responsibilities in all that time. She’s probably feeling a bit threatened by the prospect of representational change. And so she should.

What comes next?
June 22: Council to consider yesterday’s vote.
July 4 to August 4: Public consultation period.
September 15: Final council decision.
October 15: Close of appeal period.
April 10, 2010: Final date for Local Government Commission decision.

Stevenson apology sent to ‘third party’
By Chris Morris
Cr Teresa Stevenson has sent a second apology to Dunedin Mayor Peter Chin, but doubts it will be good enough.

This is nothing more than a bid on Stevenson’s part to attract voter sympathy – but actually we’re sick of it. This protracted stoush between Chin and Stevenson doesn’t deserve the exposure. Grow up.
