If you asked someone who has never climbed
more than a few stairs to take on Mt Everest
you'd be mad. To undertake such expeditions
requires a lot of build up and preparation. But
if you suggested they climb just one more
stair each day we are in the realm of
possibility. What small step could
you undertake in your life that will
take you closer to the true dream of

MY LIFE AS A PIANO!
LYTTELTON MT-HERBERT COMMUNITY BOARD: 9 CANDIDATES, 5 ELECTED POSITIONS

As a current Community Board
member, local business owner and
active community member, my local
government experience, community
connections and business
experience mean I have what it takes
to be an effective councillor. I offer
continuity, knowledge, proven ability,
real engagement, and the ability to
''hit the ground running''. I believe in
openness, transparency, inclusivity,
and a ''grassroots up'' approach.
As a skilled and experienced
communicator, I will listen to your
views and put your message across
clearly and concisely. After working
through the city council's consent and
licensing procedures, I believe we
need to look at new strategies and
processes. It's about having a fresh
approach and I am more than ready to
take the plunge.
Christchurch needs councillors with
guts, insight, determination and
experience, a sense of justice, and
courage to stand up for their beliefs.
New Zealand sees our council as a
basket case, with a leadership
requiring government intervention,
and citizens without faith. What
distinguishes me, is I know what it's
like to be there, and I know how to
break away. Today.
Communities need to be able to trust
their council. I will work to build your
trust. I will support decisions which
contribute positively to social, cultural
and environmental wellbeing, as well
as having economic benefits. I want
to be part of a council which lives up
to its own motto ''s''.

Need to get job done
RECOVERY ESSENTIAL: Banks Peninsula and Lyttelton needs to recover
CANDIDATES RUNNING for the
Banks Peninsula ward are on
similar courses for the area's
recovery with each identifying
some key goals going forward.
Andrew Turner said the rebuild
and repair of local facilities was a
must-do, including libraries,
swimming pools, community cen-
tres and council-owned facilities
across the ward.
Recovery is not business as
usual,'' he said. We simply need
to get this work done.''
Nuk Korako agreed, citing
specific need for the repair of the
Memorial Swimming Pool and the
Lyttelton Recreation Centre.
Korako also prioritised getting
people back into their homes, get-
ting them repaired, and establish-
ing a more meaningful relation-
ship with the Earthquake
Commission and Cera.
Turner also said he wanted to
see the Lyttelton Master Plan fol-
lowed through. He wanted to see a
planning regime which simul-
taneously encouraged rebuild and
development, but maintained the
feel of the port town.
Jane Broughton also wanted to
see economic development for the
ward, but balanced with an envi-
approach. She also wanted to see
the retention of the ward's heri-
tage and aesthetics when it came
to future planning.
Current community board chair
Paula Smith said many of the
issues faced by the ward were the
same as those faced by the city.
She wanted to see credibility of
the council restored and the com-
munity given more of a voice in its
She said within the ward,
important issues varied from
place to place all over the penin-
sula and townships. However she
wanted to see more recovery plan-
ning for Lyttelton and an ease in
pressure from cruise ships in Aka-
