Community support I would like to give my sincere thanks to all those that voted for me in the local board elections. It is good to know that I had so much support in the community and unfortunately not quite enough -- five votes -- to get in. I would also like to thank those who fronted up and gave me the money to go for a recount. The result of the recount done last Wednesday made no substantive changes to the situation. My scrutineer Ron Walden, who deserves a special vote of thanks, was impressed by the rigorous way in which the counting system works and is assured that the result was accurate. The judge has agreed to return the recount fee. I will now be getting on with my life as LandManLimited offering environmental consultancy services to landowners on Waiheke and developing a couple of products that have been in the offing for a while. A few of us are also developing a Waiheke polling system which we will be rolling out in the new year. The returned fee from the recount will be given to the development of this web- based polling system. The system will work to gauge public views and opinions on issues around Waiheke and options for dealing with them. We believe there are many ways in which this will be of service to the community. Again, many thanks. The new local board will need all the help it can get over the next three years to set Waiheke on a good footing with the new council. I will be working to do what I can to ensure that this community remains strongly diverse, and that we support local employment and businesses and development that creates environmental improvements. Andy Spence Onetangi Great attitude Congratulations to Don McKenzie for being this year s inductee into the Attitude Hall of Fame. We are privileged to have such an inspiring New Zealander in our midst. People like Don help put Waiheke on the map and act as an inspiration to us all. Second congratulations to Don for organising a great Santa parade, and a third well done to the new local board for helping out. I saw Faye Storer there as one of the judges along with Jo Holmes as Master of Ceremonies. It was very encouraging to see so many members of the new board actively involved in an important community event and working together as a team. Mike Lee was also there as a judge showing the flag for the Auckland Council. It bodes well for the future of Waiheke to see such co-operation.
