Queenstown Lakes District councillor
Jude Battson, Wanaka ward
1. For Wanaka, the roundabout at Caltex corner
and progress on the proposed sport facility,
election year, how our new chief executive
performs, hopefully no flood and grr, me getting a
yearolder. . .
2. The huge number of projects we as council
achieved for our community, interviewing Adam
Feeley and employing him, birth of my
granddaughter Esme Battson . . . we need more
3. Getting re-elected because I love my job as a
councillor and am good at it.
4. Value for money from council at all levels
including socially, also, voting turnout is extremely
low in the region.
Voters allocating time to what's going down with
council, the effect it has on them as ratepayers or
residents and enthusiastically putting a tick beside
my name next October. Getting kerbside collection
back to Wanaka Wastebusters.
Former NZX chief executive Mark
Weldon and Terra Sancta vineyard
owner in Cromwell
1. I am positive on the Queenstown Lakes economy
for 2013, and think we will start to see the next
wave of investment driven by the sound long-term
fundamentals of the region and in a wide range of
businesses -- well beyond tourism and the
businesses that support that.
2. Launching the Terra Sancta wine label, making
our first sales, having customers love the wine and
come back and buy more and winning the trophy
for best rose in the country in both Cuisine and at
the New Zealand International Wine show.
3. Develop some export markets for Terra Sancta,
and look carefully at another potential investment
4. The biggest hurdle the region has to overcome
is its beauty -- and make a case for non-tourism
based businesses to invest here.
Expanding the number of direct flights, and having
Queenstown airport be a true international hub is
key to this. If this happens, I would expect science,
health care, finance and tech to all find a home in
Queenstown in much greater numbers than today.

Central Otago and Southern Lakes
residents are being urged to be more
vigilant with sunscreen this sum-
mer as sun damage cases in the area
MoleMap melanographer Anneke
Campbell, who travels throughout
the region attending mobile skin
clinics, said the amount of sun-
damaged skin in Central Otago was
Melanoma and other skin conditions
were on the rise in the area and
people needed to start being more
responsible when it came to the sun,
Mrs Campbell said.
She urged people to use SPF 50
sunscreen, which ensured 98 per
cent protect from UVB, and sun-
Most people did not know much
about sunscreen and often did not
apply enough because it was
expensive, Mr Campbell said.
Children under the age of 15 who
suffer from painful sunburn have a
higher chance of developing mela-
noma when they are older, she said.
The best defence from the sun was
clothing, she said.
