The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
The Mayor of
Waimakariri, David Ayers, has announced his intention to retire at the end of
the current Council term in October 2019.
“Marilyn and I are at
a stage in our lives, in our early 70s, where we want to step back rather than to
commit a further three years to this role,” he said. “I am looking forward to
the next 18 months of Council work but it will then be time for someone else to
take on the responsibilities.”
David Ayers was first
elected to the Rangiora Borough Council in 1983 and is the only Rangiora
Borough Councillor to have served on the Waimakariri District Council. By October next year, he will have spent 30 years
as a councillor or mayor – plus six years in the early 2000s chairing the
Council’s Rangiora Ward Advisory Board.
He was Deputy Mayor between 1995 and 2001 and was elected to the Mayoralty
“Coming to the
mayoralty one month after the September 2010 earthquake has meant that my time
has been dominated by earthquake recovery, earthquake-prone buildings and town
centre rebuilding,” he said. “However, the time to look back will be some time
in the future. There is plenty ahead of us on the Council over the rest of the
term, including the on-going post-earthquake projects in the Kaiapoi and
Pines-Kairaki Regeneration Areas.
“I continue to enjoy
the role and being out in our fantastic community, but announcing my intentions
now gives others plenty of time to consider standing. It is not a job to be taken on lightly as it
requires a good 60 hours a week, including most weekends.”
