Our web site has only been up and running for a week, and already 33 readers have voted in our poll.
We are now half way through the first term of the Auckland Council and Henderson Massey Local Board and we invite you to comment. So please, take your time and answer – as you like.
We will collate your responses at the end of April, so there is still plenty of time to vote and/or comment.
Meanwhile, the following comment has received our first “Thumbs Up” for giving an honest point of view.
I am not happy with new city although I supported it. I forgot that it could only be as good as those elected. What we have got is a mini council that has workshops to debate the agenda (not open to public) and only use meetings to rubber stamp their decisions with no debate.
There is no consultation on local matters and indeed in some cases decisions have been made to not consult as they know the residents will not support it. There is no accountability, consultation or transparency with the officers totally in control.
What’s your view?
