Councillor 'just being honest' over pay packet

A Tauranga city councillor who has admitted he works just 22 hours a week for his $74,000 a year pay packet, says he was just being very honest.

Rick Curach made the declaration for a Remuneration Authority survey at a council meeting on Tuesday.

Other councillors stated they worked between 30 and 50 hours a week, Tauranga Mayor Stuart Crosby said he worked up to 70.

A large number of comments panning Mr Curach have appeared on social media sites and on the site of the newspaper that reported his admission.
