Several representa- tives voiced displeasure to the Auckland Council. Mr Kerr-Newell re- ceived a $349,000 ter- mination package when the Auckland Council took office in November 2010. It was one of the largest redundancy pay- outs in the Auckland Council amalgamation process. A subsequent inquiry by the auditor-general found two specific pay- ments totalling $42,000 to Mr Kerr-Newell breached the Transi- tional Authority Act and some in Rodney are call- ing for Mr Kerr-Newell to pay the money back. Representatives of the Kaukapakapa, Whanga- paraoa and Orewa rate- payers associations con- fronted the council at its monthly meeting. Kaukapakapa Area Residents and Rate- payers Association sec- retary Crispin Caldicott says mayor Len Brown agreed to look into the issue. The payment made represents in our view a very cavalier attitude towards public funds, Mr Caldicott said in his presentation. Former Rodney mayor Penny Webster says the auditor-general had stated there was nothing to this matter . She has actually writ- ten to this group and told them. Our legal counsel has also stated that they don t have a case, Mrs Webster says. I can t think of any reason why they would persist. I have stated before that I took advice on the matter, there was a legal contract and the auditor s officer would have followed up any- thing untoward. Candidates at meeting Political parties fighting for electors votes are being invited to an open meeting at Kaukapa- kapa. The Kaukapakapa Residents and Rate- payers Association hosts the November 10 event from 7pm at the hall. Chairman Ralph Mar- tin is expecting written questions to be handed to him before the meet- ing. Candidates will be asked to speak and then answer questions. Helensville candidate Jeanette Elley has won the Green Party candi- dacy for Helensville. The Auckland IT pro- fessional has been chosen to represent the party in the November general election. Ms Elley, who ranks No 19 on the Green Party list, contested Northcote and East Coast Bays electorates in past elections. A keen sportswoman, she has played for the NZ waterpolo team. Moped rules under fire The Motor Trade Associ- ation is slamming the government for failing to make mopeds have war- rant of fitnesses. In addition, people will still not need a licence to ride mopeds. MTA spokeswoman Ana Zandi says improved training for motorcyclists and new power to weight restrictions for novice riders will help reduce the number of deaths involving motorcycles. We have been advo- cating for these changes for some time, she says. New regulations this year made it compulsory for any moped to be inspected before being registered in the country. The association wel- comes the change but says more is needed.
