George to face censure
The New Plymouth District Council monitoring committee has ruled Sherril George has breached the council's code of conduct over what Mayor Harry Duynhoven described as an attack on a senior manager.
The committee has recommended the full council censure Ms George and remove her from four council roles, including a seat on its policy committee.
The renegade councillor was not present at the hearing and had indicated she did not wish to attend and didn't wish to make a statement.
The committee found Ms George's letter to the Taranaki Daily News last week, saying a ''short person with a big ego'' was the common thread in three senior management resignations at the council, had breached the code.
