Sherrill George's fate up in air

00:15, Feb 13 2013

The fate of councillor Sherrill George will be decided at a full New Plymouth District Council meeting this afternoon.

Ms George is facing a code of conduct hearing to decide whether a letter to the editor she wrote breached the council's code.

Earlier this month the council's monitoring committee found Ms George's letter, in which she said a "short person with a big ego" was the common thread in three senior management resignations at the council, did breach the code. 

Monitoring committee chairman Craig McFarlane said it was clear to anyone acquainted with general manager community services Cathy Thurston that it was she to whom Ms George was referring.

The committee recommended the full council censure Ms George and remove her from four council roles, including her seat on its policy committee.
