A new board member has joined Waitematā Local Board following the resignation of former board member Sarah Trotman in October.
Glenda Fryer was sworn in at the board’s November business meeting and will take on portfolio and liaison responsibilities to be decided at next month’s Waitematā Local Board business meeting.
Waitematā Local Board Chair Richard Northey says the board are pleased with the appointment of Ms. Fryer who brings with her over 30-years of governance experience, including six years of service as the Deputy Chair of Albert-Eden Local Board.
“We now have a full complement of board members to represent the wonderful and diverse range of people across Waitematā until next year’s Local Government elections,” he said.
A resident of St Mary’s Bay, Ms. Fryer says she’s ready to hit the ground running, working with the diverse communities of Waitematā to carry out the board’s plan for the area.
“Leadership is needed now more than ever as we face a global pandemic and a climate change emergency,” she said.
