Will the way some of the councillors voted on the Wastenet tender influence your vote?

Here is where the 10 sitting councillors stand on the Wastenet Tender:

The sitting city councillors and mayoral candidates to oppose Wastenet recommendations for the tender and keep the contract with SDE were:

  • Lindsay Abbot
  • Alan Arnold
  • Toni Biddle
  • Graeme Lewis
  • Ian Pottinger (was overseas, but abstained due to close assoc with SdE)
  • Mayor Tim Shadbolt (M)

These sitting city councillors and mayoral candidates below voted for or are in favour of Wastenet recommendations to replace SDE with North Island company Smart Environmental. They have been continuing to fight the democratic vote on June 5, including signing a requisition for an extraordinary council meeting while the Mayor was out of town. Mayor Tim travelled back for the meeting and it was ended due to incorrect procedure.

  • Darren Ludlow (M)
  • Bec’s Amundsen (M)
