Swinging out the lifeboats?

Written by  Milking It

The Fonterra shareholders council announced last week that elections will take place in 10 of its 25 wards.

The council has come under fire for its role over the years. Some farmers accuse it of turning a blind eye to years of bad investment decisions by the directors and management.

With the council under the pump are we seeing councillors heading for the lifeboats?
