An­swers long-term

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

The let­ter, Sta­tus quo woes, (March 27) high­lighted nu­mer­ous con­cerns from An­drew Wellum that re­quire a re­sponse.

Mr Wellum spec­u­lates on how our city com­pares on a range of is­sues. Un­for­tu­nately all of his spec­u­la­tion is wrong.

He would have been wellad­vised to have waited a week and re­searched the draft Long Term Plan which was adopted at the March 29 coun­cil meet­ing.

The process in­vites all forms of in­put in­clud­ing writ­ten and oral pre­sen­ta­tion to spe­cial ses­sions of the coun­cil.

I hope Mr Wellum takes the op­por­tu­nity as it is im­por­tant his con­cerns are ob­jec­tively ad­dressed.

I strongly ob­ject to is his at­tack on the in­tegrity of the coun­cil’s of­fi­cers and staff. They are, as he is aware, not able to de­fend them­selves.

I wel­come vig­or­ous ex­change of views and val­ues.
