Su­per city not wanted

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

I am both sur­prised and dis­ap­pointed in the Porirua City Coun­cil and the mayor’s seem­ing ac­qui­es­cence to par­tic­i­pate with an am­bi­tious Fran Wilde and the Greater Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil’s drive to se­cure a Welling­ton ‘‘su­per city’’ sta­tus. It will de­prive any sense of au­ton­omy (never mind grass­roots democ­racy), for Porirua City as well as ev­ery other city, dis­trict, sub­urb, and vil­lage in the re­gion.
