Keep it up
In response to J Terrence of Titahi Bay’s letter (KMN, March 20), we need Brian Collins, in fact we need more of him. It is people like Brian Collins who keeps the council on their toes. He takes the time to find out what the council are up to and why and through the letters to the editor he can communicate information to the community. Sadly most of this is usually of a negative nature because he wants the public to know negatively impacting activities (for example, the wakepark at Aotea Lagoon) of the council so they can get informed and have their say. Most of our community are too busy to spend time reading up on what the council is up to and sometimes things change and the community gets a bit of a surprise. Unfortunately there is a large proportion of us who fall into the ‘‘don’t care’’ basket. So keep up the good work Brian. And as you pointed out New Zealand is a democracy and we have the freedom of speech, we also have the freedom not to read either. So if you don’t like it just don’t read it. And if my memory serves me well, me thinks you might be something to do with a wake park.
