"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Kate for Carterton

I'm Kate Raue and I am running for mayor of Carterton. Feel free to check this blog regularly to be updated on events in Carterton. At the end of each text there is a small section were you to can have your say by leaving a comment.





I’m standing for Mayor because I see an opportunity to positively influence the future direction of our community.

I’ll work to facilitate business growth, social and economic development in Carterton, and work with the other Wairarapa Councils to implement a regional strategy to this effect. Clearly, an efficient and well-run Council will result in rates being utilised much more prudently and effectively.

There will be inquiries into the Carterton District Council’s involvement with the former Community Centre, Facility Focus Group, and information provided to the Council by individual members and employees of the Council.

I will ensure that we get an economically and socially sustainable Community Resource Centre.

For more information please contact me to arrange a meeting, I hold information that every voter should see, but unfortunately lack resources at the moment to make it widely available. I can fax documents to anyone who is interested. Phone 379 6894.
