Ms Templeton ousted Paul Lonsdale in the Heathcote Ward in the local body elections on Saturday, while Mrs Galloway won the new Halswell Ward by 97 votes over Chrys Horn. Said Ms Templeton: “I’ve had such amazing support from my campaign team and the community who have all been supporting me through this. “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 eager to get to work as a city councillor. naTiVe planT nursery Trees for CanTerbury speCialisTs in • Groundcovers • Ferns • Grasses • Small to big sized shrubs • Shelterbelts • ALL grades • Expert advice • Planting now Ask us about Super Gold Card discounts Helping our community grow 42 Charlesworth Street Ph/Fax (03) 982-1028 OPEN 7 DAYS www.treesforcanterbury.org.nz NEW ROLES: Sara Templeton (left) and Anne Galloway are two new faces around the city council table. 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 focus on as a city councillor. “They’re both interlinked very closely,” she said. “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. There are House of Hearing 100% NZ Owned & Operated some communities that are really struggling and so we need to focus on those areas and at the same time enabling those that are well resourced to get on and do what they’re doing,” she said.
