NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday April 10 2018 5 News Cartwright steps down as chairman MacDonald wants to lead board • By Julia Evans FENDALTON-Waimairi- Harewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright has stayed true to his word. Mr Cartwright tabled his resignation as chairman at last Monday’s board meeting. He said it was always his plan to step down 18 months into the role. Sam MacDonald “That was always the intent from day one, that I would do half a term,” he said. Mr Cartwright said he was stepping aside to let other board members take on more responsibility. “It’s about building expertise and giving people a chance . . . there are very capable people on the board.” Mr Cartwright disclosed he recently “had a birthday with a zero in it” and had received some fly fishing gear.

The board will vote in a new chairperson at its next meeting on Monday. Until then, Mr Cartwright will remain chairman. Deputy chairman Sam Struggling to see with your dim lights?

Mr Cartwright was first elected to the board in 2010. He served as deputy under chairwoman Val Carter during his second term from 2013 until being elected chairman in 2016. During a city council meeting on Thursday, Mr Cartwright was thanked by Mayor Lianne Dalziel for his time as chairman. “It’s been great to have you in the role,” she said. Local News Now Fire rages, homes at risk Community facility petition launched •From page 1 Innes Ward city councillor Pauline Cotter said she was fully behind the board and its petition. “We’ve got a really proactive board that goes out to the community . . . and gets people talking, asks them what they want to see in their neighbourhoods,” she said. Ms Jones said some residents had offered to go door-knocking. Shirley resident Jennifer Dalziel is collecting signatures. She said if funding isn’t included now, Ali Jones people will have forgotten about it in 10 years time. “We are being made to feel like we should just give up,” she said. The petition has about 100 signatures so far. Ms Jones said the funding doesn’t have to specifically go towards a new community centre building, just something the community can use, such as a fruit forest, community barbecue, garden or an all access playground.
