A challenge by our new columnist Sean Fintan O’Toole to politicians has been taken up by Penny Gaylor, Kāpiti’s Regional Councillor.
Sean challenged Penny Gaylor and Mayor K Gurunathan to name just two concrete achievements over the past three years.
Councillor Gaylor answered immediately by pointing to her greatest achievement — getting a Capital Connection replacement train into the Greater Wellington Long Term Plan.
She says ‘it’s probably my biggest concrete achievement.
And she says the Greater Wellington Regional Council is now finalising a business case for a replacement train for the popular Capital Connection service between Palmerston North and Wellington.
Penny says her second major achievement was to highlight the momentous shift to get a productive political relationship between the Regional Council and the Kapiti District Council.
She points out this was a commitment she campaigned on.
