The Carterton District Council is holding a by-election following the resignation of Councillor Steffen Bertram.

The resignation becomes effective from February of 2021.

Mr Bertram was elected onto the council during the 2019 Local Body Elections.

He was part of the Audits and Risk Committee. Also, a member as the Policy and Strategy Committee, Fund Committee, Arts, Culture and Heritage group, the Economic Development Advisory Group, Wairarapa Library Services committee and the Carterton and District Returned and Services Memorial Trust.

COVID-19 was part of his workload increase in the Government role and he has said that it has made it increasingly difficult to have a balance in his work and responsibilities for the council.

“Over the last 12 months, I’m most proud that Carterton rates only rose 1.72 per cent, which was 2 per cent lower than forecasted,” Mr Bertram said.

“I am leaving the district at a time when it is in a very good financial position and with an effective management team who work well with the governance group.”
