A backdown in Gore

Stuff reports:

Not a single Gore district councillor was prepared to put forward a vote of no confidence in 24-year-old mayor Ben Bell.

Despite the deputy mayor Keith Hovell and seven councillors signing a requisition calling for an extraordinary meeting be held on Tuesday to pass a vote of no confidence – no one wanted to move the motion.

Good. This whole attempted coup was backfiring badly on those responsible with thousands signing a petition calling for the CEO to be sacked.
