All the same

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


The front page story [ KMN, Oc­to­ber 8] asks why peo­ple aren’t vot­ing in the Porirua City Coun­cil elec­tions.

Let me tell you why I didn’t vote in this year’s lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions. Rel­a­tively new to the area, I sat down to pe­ruse the can­di­date book­let, and my eyes soon glazed over.

Ev­ery sin­gle can­di­date is the same! They want to ‘‘work to im­prove the com­mu­nity’’. They want to ‘‘con­trol’’ rates rises (but none of them had a con­crete plan to do this). They want to make Porirua ‘‘a vi­brant place’’. They will ‘‘sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses’’.
