Deputy chair resigns after being 'marginalised' by committee chair


Councillor Yvonne Bowater resigned from her position as deputy chair of the community and recreation committee, saying she felt marginalised and unable to fully perform her duties in the role. Nelson City Councillor Yvonne Bowater has announced her resignation as deputy chair of the community and recreation committee “with a great deal of reluctance and a tinge of disappointment”. Bowater acknowledged the support of some of her colleagues at the table, in particular the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and councillor Gaile Noonan. In a written statement about the resignation Bowater said her time as deputy chair had been “a challenging 18 months that could have been made easier”. Bowater was appointed to the role after the committee restructure which combined the community services committee, of which she was deputy chair, and the sports and recreation committee.
