We are not amused

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Edi­tor,

Why should we laugh at a woman with a rolling pin threat­en­ing fa­tal vi­o­lence against small chil­dren? Your car­toon (KMN, Oc­to­ber 5) might have found a home in Truth news­pa­per in 1955, but we have moved on from that level of hu­mour (and, we may hope, child-rear­ing). – HUGH YOUNG and TIM BISH,

Pukerua Bay coun­cil seat back in 1998 and was suc­cess­ful: He be­came the youngest city councillor in New Zealand back then.

It is bril­liant to see our young peo­ple be­ing elected to hold po­si­tions within any author­ity and com­mit­ted to rep­re­sent­ing their com­mu­nity.

With a new gen­er­a­tion at the coun­cil ta­ble, a new chief ex­ec­u­tive and a new Mana MP soon to be elected, it is a time for Porirua to ac­cept and re­spect our new young lead­ers, be­cause they all de­serve to be in of­fice, and in re­turn they will re­spect the com­mu­nity they are com­mit­ted to rep­re­sent.
