Superb choice!! Of course the Greens will still bleat on about CERA’s dictatorial powers. If anyone can inspire confidence in Chch but still have the executive experience to lead this monumental task its Roger Sutton.
Absolutely no doubt, he is the right man for the job. Orion have done a great job getting the power restored after the earthquakes but not only that, they have been great at communicating what they have been doing and what the plan is. They have taken out full page ads in the paper with timelines and progress reports.
Compare this with Civil Defense who seem to operate a code of secrecy.
It is not really a great surprise that Roger is the new head of Cera, this was discussed a while ago in the media when Roger Sutton was suggested as the perfect choice, I think he also indicated an interest in the position – he is a bit of a greeny so that might not go down well with the kiwiblog illuminati.
