Caesar Michael Williams loses no confidence motion but stays in job

Last night, at the Howick Local Board meeting, the following motion of no confidence in Michael Williams was passed.

(a) That the Howick Local Board expresses no confidence in the chairmanship of Michael Williams as a result of his criminal conviction on 22nd February 2013.

Unbelievably though the convicted drunk driver remains as the local board chair after members refused to request he resign in a subsequent motion.

It is clear now though that the Howick Local Board is dysfunctional and Michael Williams is a chairman in name only with the board having lost confidence in him. 

If he was a decent man he would have resolved on his drive home last night with his missus behind the wheel, to fall on his sword. I doubt he will, he lacks the awareness of his predicament. UPDATE: It seems fellow board member Wayne Huang has been drafted to act as chauffeur to the Caesar.

Therefore I will have to get some billboards made up and plaster them around the local community as I mount a campaign to have him removed at the local body ejections elections in October or November.
