"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.

The Heart of Carterton - Katherine Jane Reid:

Katherine Reid

Katherine Jane Reid was the Real Heart of Carterton.

Carterton lost one of its greatest assets recently, Katherine Jane Reid.  Katherine worked at the Carterton District Council, she should have been running the place.  

Always bright and cheerful, professional, efficient, great at her job.  Katherine always followed things up, she'd give you a ring and get back to you about things, she sorted things out effortlessly, and stood out head and shoulders above the other office staff in this respect.  I can't count the times she helped me with enquiries, but every time she did I left her company feeling better than I did before.  Katherine just had a way of making people feel good, because she was good.

Nobody who ever met Katherine would have found a bad word to say about her, she was an absolute sweetie, and it is an utter, utter tragedy that she passed away recently, suddenly, unexpectedly, leaving her beloved daughter, aged just two years old, and her loving partner.

They say only the good die young, well you wouldn't get much "gooder" than Katherine Reid.

Rest in peace Katherine, I miss you a lot, and think of you often.

You'll always live on in our hearts, thanks for the lovely memories.  This one's for you:
