One of Christchurch’s longest-serving elected members has resigned due to ill health.
Sally Buck has announced her resignation from the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board.
Her resignation marks the end of her 22-year contribution to local government in Christchurch.
Ms Buck served as a Christchurch City Councillor, representing the Waimairi ward, from 1998 to 2013. She then served a term on the Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board before being elected to the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board in 2016 where she served as Chairperson.
Ms Buck was re-elected to the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board in October 2019 . She resigned from the Chairperson role in late April for health reasons.
“I’ve loved serving the community and making changes in the city. It's been a huge privilege to meet so many wonderful people through this role and it’s been an incredible insight into the wonderful community that is Christchurch.
“I've loved seeing new ideas and new projects come to fruition and seeing people enjoy them,” Ms Buck says.
