That’s the reaction from new city councillor Sara Templeton , who ousted Paul Lonsdale (right) in the Heathcote Ward in the local body elections on Saturday. “I’ve had such amazing support from my campaign team and the community who have all been supporting me through this,” she said. “There were no expectations at all – I was hoping to win but I wouldn’t have stood for council if I didn’t think I could win. But I never expected that margin.” Ms Templeton received 4059 votes, Mr Lonsdale 2474, and the other unsuccessful candidate, Malcolm Davis received 477. Mr Londsale was the only sitting councillor to miss out on being re-elected. Ms Templeton said she was surprised with the result, but was eager to get to work as a city councillor. Ms Templeton was the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board chairwoman for the last term, and has campaigned hard in the new Heathcote Ward to join the council table. Building communities and sustainability are the two key things she will be focusing on as a city councillor. “They’re both interlinked very closely. We need communities that are thriving and connected to become more connected. People shopping locally and being connected is the more sustainable way for a city to be,” she said. •Turn to page 4 NEW PRODUCT Raveena 4 Piece Alum Wicker Setting A new take on a classic look.
