Cambridge Community Board chair Mike Pettit addressed the Better Business Cambridge group recently, talking about his vision for the town to an audience of local business owners and guests.
Mike gave an overview of upcoming developments in the town, in what was a frank discussion about the future of Cambridge. He also encouraged as many people as possible to stand in next year’s local body elections, adding that at the 2016 elections there was competition in each seat, which didn’t happen in many New Zealand towns.
Better Business Cambridge started five years ago, to better local businesses by working together and sharing the expertise of friends and colleagues. For commercial reasons, there is only one business from each industry permitted, so participants can speak freely about the challenges they face without commercial disadvantage.
