Petition: Say no to the golden handshake for Napier City Council’s CEO

Wayne Jack image

Napier City Council is reportedly negotiating a nearly $1 million payout for departing CEO Wayne Jack.

Departing CEOs do not need or deserve massive payouts – especially when they've lost the confidence of councillors. If Napier City Council is unhappy with Wayne Jack's performance – and they have every reason to be – then they should avoid the cost of a managed exit, and simply fire him.

Mr Jack has spent seven years being paid around $300,000 – he's milked Napier ratepayers enough already.

Napier ratepayers should not be forced to pay a million-dollar golden handshake to a town clerk that has lost the confidence of his councillors.
