Dunedin has a new mayor, Dave Cull. This is of particular interest to me because Dave is the councillor who led the development of the Dunedin Digital Strategy.
It remains to be seen what aspects, if any, of the Strategy will be implemented. I am hoping that Dave will continue to push the various innovations. Needless to say, I will be watching developments closely.
If nothing else, the process of making a submission has made me very interested in how local council processes work and plan to become more involved in what's going on around me. I'm not too sure how to do this but if nothing else, I hope I'll get a chance to be involved with the implementation of the Digital Strategy.
