Lead by ex­am­ple

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Edi­tor,

A cus­tomer is ‘‘some­one who pur­chases goods and/or ser­vices from a sup­plier’’. This ap­pears to be a con­cept for­eign to Porirua City coun­cil­lors as dis­played by their treat­ment of Hous­ing New Zealand (KMN, June 26), who would have to be their sin­gle big­gest cus­tomer.

To de­mand that your big­gest cus­tomer at­tend a pub­lic meet­ing to be be­rated by coun­cil­lors was a shame­ful ex­hi­bi­tion of dis­cour­tesy, po­lit­i­cal pos­tur­ing and power play. All of the mat­ters raised should have been dis­cussed on a pri­vate ba­sis rather than at a pub­lic meet­ing.

What an ap­palling ex­am­ple to coun­cil staff.

AL­LAN BLOOM­FIELD, Pau­ata­hanui
