Crux podcast: It's official, Councillor Gladding is in, Mayor Lewers is out

by Peter Newport - Jul 03, 2024

Queenstown Lakes councillor Niki Gladding is our guest on this Friday's edition of the Crux podcast and after no less than three ignored invitations we have to conclude that district mayor Glyn Lewers will not feature in this series.

That's sad, as we would have loved to have chatted to him, but we think you'll find Councillor Gladding's interview equally compelling - or even more so.

We'll be approaching more key community guests soon but already confirmed for upcoming episodes are:

  • Deputy mayor Quentin Smith
  • Chair of the Wānaka-Upper Clutha Community Board Simon Telfer
  • Otago Regional Councillor for the local Dunstan Ward Alexa Forbes
  • Queenstown Airport chief executive Glen Sowry
  • Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust chief executive Julie Scott

And if you have not already checked them out, our first three interviews are all here.

  • Councillor Cody Tucker
  • Councillor Matt Wong
  • Councillor Esther Whitehead
