Regional Councillor

I’m thrilled and humbled to announce that I have been elected as the Thames-Coromandel representative on the Waikato Regional Council.

Preliminary election day results give me a 283-vote majority over the second-placed candidate.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  For those of you who voted for another candidate, rest assured I’ll be working in the interests of everyone in Thames-Coromandel.

My campaign focused almost entirely on the need for urgent strong action to address the climate crisis.  I am especially pleased that the election result now gives me a solid mandate to pursue climate action for the region and Thames-Coromandel.

There are many other major challenges and opportunities for our region and district, and I relish the chance to tackle them.

My campaign also showed that you don’t have to throw large amounts of money into billboards, paid radio and newspaper advertising, and negative personal attacks to be successful.  Sticking to the issues and using social media is a winning strategy.

 

Preliminary results :-

Denis Tegg          3311

Dal Minogue       3028

Clyde Graf           2971

Liam Kedzlie       2422

  1. Good one Denis, you have my support. It’s not all about protecting Lake Taupo from bad farming practice. As you will be aware,Waihi has just been gifted another potential tailings dam which will open the gates to extensive further mining into the Coromandel from of all people, our Labour Government !!!, whats going on here? Eugenie Sage was quite correct to state that a tailings dam was a misuse of land in a community that had gained nothing from the billions stripped from beneath their private homes and exported overseas since 1986. I Have it on good authority that Oceana gold had already re-located the person who owned the land for the proposed new tailings dam and had a property purchased for them in Waihi prior to consent being sought from the mining company to build a new tailings dam. The deal was to relocate you to another house and we will purchase the land once the deal goe’s through as it is a forgone conclusion bearing in mind that the HDC has always been in the pocket of mining companies . Robertson & Parker should have done their homework before overturning Eugenie Sage’s informed decision… to say I am Disappointed and disgusted would be an understatement…..Chris Hallums ….ex Waihi resident…with good reason.
