The Community Trust South board has had a clean out of trustees by associate finance minister David Clarke. It’s been announced that three current trustees have been replaced from 1st June.
Community Trust South Chairwoman Margot Hishon, Stephen O’Connor and Warren Skerrett have been replaced by Stephen Canny, Bill Moran and David Goble.
Stuff / Southland Times reported back in 2016:
The Community Trust was rocked back in 2016 by controversy when then general manager John Prendergast resigned, but only having been told it was the unanimous wish of trustees that he do so. Citing legal constraints, Hishon and the trustees have resolutely declined to explain their decision and Prendergast himself says he was not told why.
