Colourful North Shore politician Eric Hobbs, a member of the Birkenhead-Northcote community board since 1992, deputy chairman of the board & chairman of its works committee, died on Monday at his Birkdale home. He was employed as a drainage serviceman at Techscape Ltd, the Albany-based contracting company jointly owned by North Shore City and Waitakere City Councils. Community board chairman Jennifer Yorke said: “His wicked sense of humour, extensive knowledge of history & the planet, together with his compassion for the underdog, ensured that Eric has left this community much richer for his being here. He attended an average of 2 meetings each week – mostly on a volunteer basis – and was always helping to increase funding for these groups. His well worn shoes – or should I say gumboots – will be very difficult to fill.” A by-election will be held to fill the community board vacancy.
