Ever since the Gore council did its rebranding and changed the district name to Go Re District, as indicated on sign as you enter the district and letter heads etc, it got me wondering why?

OPINION: Why change the name and therefore our identity? The answer did not come to me until Wednesday March 26 when in The Southland Times Mayor Tracy Hicks and Southland District Mayor Gary Tong were having a cuppa on Mr Clarke's dairy farm and here is the answer I got.

The Gore District Council, or should I say the Go Re District Council, has a hidden agenda.

This Go Re is the new name for the Amalgamated Districts of Southland and the cuppa between the two mayors is the beginning (remember John Banks And John Key).

So you other councils watch out, Gore's got the name sorted. Get the jug boiling for a few more cuppas.
