Neil Kirton

5-4 against moves to 6-3 against the Dodgy Socialist Dam

As predicted Neil Kirton has locked in behind the majority against the Ruataniwha dam.

He isn’t fully locked in, but he can see the writing on the wall.

Returned Hawke’s Bay Regional Councillor Neil Kirton will be calling for a moratorium on any Ruataniwha Dam action until the new council has “got all our ducks in a row”.

Mr Kirton, who left the council in 2013 following four terms, is one of its two new Napier councillors – based on the counting of approximately 98 per cent of the returned voting papers.

Excited to be back on council, Mr Kirton said he was looking forward to having a “good crack” at some unfinished business, and some challenges facing the council. ? Read more »

Possible Suspects

Here is the list of possible suspects in the case of the rorting ex-MP. I think it is unlikely it is a one termer. Possibly a two termer but likely to be one, either with form, or a confusing set of services. Therefore I have eliminated the one termers (except those with form) from the list.

I encourage the innocent to use the tip line to eliminate themselves.
