Outgoing city councillor Simon Woolf has nine months to go in his job
Woolf announced on Facebook earlier this week he will stand down at the next election, having represented the Wharangi Onslow Western ward for the last three terms. Woolf says we need new blood on the council and it's time to let other people take up the mantle.
But he also told Nick Mills a culture of a lack of trust played a part in his decision.
Woolfe is also calling for party politics to take a backseat when it comes to Council.
