Tony Maryatt has said all it needs is for one of his staff or a majority of councillors to oppose him and he says that he will go…
Christchurch City Council chief executive Tony Marryatt says he will leave his job if he loses the support of the council.
Marryatt said he could negotiate a “walkout” if the majority of the council wanted him gone.
However, he believed it was not feasible.
“But there are some that would like it to happen,” he said during an interview with Newstalk ZB this morning.
He said it was a crucial time for the council as the Crown observer was going to make suggestions about more effective operations in the future.
Marryatt wanted to see whether the council was going to work together with him, or whether he should leave.
The staff “just have to walk into my office” to tell me, he said.
Rattle ya dags then and get on with it…hopefully he will take Bob with him.
