Rankin: council meetings missed = 12 out of 69 (17%), the third worst of all councillors.
Scathing review of Rankin's performance before her WINZ contract was not renewed:
" What I had not expected, however, was the on-going saga of problems that plagued the department and particularly Ms Rankin almost from the start of her term as chief executive. I have to say that I would expect a CEO of a government department of 5,000 staff on $250,000 a year to take responsibility for effective communication with her Minister."
" [Her attitude] was bordering almost on an unwillingness to accept any criticism. I have rarely experienced that level of defensiveness in a chief executive. There was a mismatch between Mrs Rankin's skills and those the new chief executive would need."
— Michael Wintringham, State Services Commissioner.
