Keep it up

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

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.

EMMA BROOKS, Pare­mata.
