Who are we, what do we do?
We’re a non-political not-for-profit organisation: our members come from all areas of the political spectrum. Our brief is to inform and educate so that residents and ratepayers can make informed decisions on Nelson Council matters, and also on elections to the Council.
We recognise that the power base within Council rests with the CEO and heads of departments; they then encourage and negotiate with the councillors, often through closed workshops, to reach the desired result. So bearing this in mind, we ensure that we maintain contact with all parties within Council.
