Guru has seen the Waikanae Library building become a tomb due to willful negligence. He has seen a council with a staff turnover of 21%. He has seen Waikanae people hit with Rates increases of between 21 and 26% during his 3-year term.
Guru has seen Air NZ leave, Fonterra [Kapiti Cheese] leave, the Todd Group leave — all smart investors. He welcomes with open arms international exploiters who will, within 5 years move to close the airport because those paying $400,000 a section will insist on quietness. That is why they have bought on the Coast.
His councilors are certainly harmonious with him, but that’s nothing to be proud of.
