Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Bob Wich­man’s let­ter pub­lished in the East­ern Courier on March 15, re­gard­ing dan­ger­ous foot­paths, gives me se­ri­ous cause for con­cern.

He states that an in­jury in­ci­dent has ‘re­in­forced my de­ci­sion to de­mand an­swers from the Auck­land Coun­cil’. Bob, were you not elected on to the How­ick Lo­cal Board of the coun­cil?

Why is Mr Wich­man de­mand­ing an­swers through the Let­ters to the Editor col­umn of a lo­cal news­pa­per?

Is he not in the en­gine room, so to speak? Can he not march into some­one’s of­fice and de­mand an­swers there?

Per­haps he could per­suade his coun­cil to re­di­rect funds, set aside to need­lessly resur­face per­fectly good streets with the cheap and nasty chip-seal, to re­pair­ing dan­ger­ous foot­paths.
