Family shocked at death of Jeff Srhoj, months after crash

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

The family of a man who died months after breaking his neck in a car crash are shocked by his sudden demise.
Jeffrey Eric Srhoj​​, 48, of Awanui, died in Middlemore Hospital's spinal unit on Saturday after being injured in a crash in the Far North on January 28.
The accident near Houhora left him stranded on the roadside for five-and-a-half hours with a broken neck, but he was getting used to communicating with his eyes, by spelling out words using a coloured spelling board, before he died.

We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Hi neighours,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.
