Jacqueline Taylor is set to be elected as a new councillor for the Hastings constituency at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council.

With all but 29 Special votes already counted on Friday afternoon, the outcome is clear. The provisional result is 4919 votes to Jacqueline Taylor, 3037 to Tom Belford and 2361 to Joe Walding-Karaitiana, based on a voter return of 10,357 votes or 24.35%.  

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council chair Rick Barker was quick to speak to the result.

“Congratulations to Jacqueline Taylor in what is a clear win and a job well done,” says Mr Barker.

“I acknowledge the other two candidates in this process and thank them for the courage to put their names forward. I’d also like to thank those in the Hastings community who took the time and effort to vote and contribute to this result, under the more challenging time of a COVID lockdown.

It is an exciting time for the Regional Council to welcome Ms Taylor as we implement our new Long Term Plan with a strong focus on climate change and water. I’m sure the Council and the wider Hawke’s Bay community are looking forward to her strong, positive contribution.” added Mr Barker.
