Anal­y­sis wel­come

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION / NEWS -

Ed­i­tor,

John Burke’s ac­knowl­edg­ment of Brian Collins’ ac­count­ing ex­per­tise and fi­nan­cial anal­y­sis is most con­struc­tive [ KMN Let­ters, July 31]. For­tu­nately, Mr Collins’ anal­y­sis has iden­ti­fied a num­ber of short­com­ings for a group of pub­lic of­fi­cials and elected per­son­nel who pur­port to have these skills. I sup­pose all that was left to you, John, was to con­struct a per­sonal at­tack.

In pro­vid­ing his anal­y­sis, Mr Collins is re­lay­ing the true fi­nan­cial im­ped­i­ments placed on ratepay­ers by those who ap­pear re­luc­tant to pro­vide this data. I would has­ten to say that Mr Collins is putting the ‘‘pub­lic fi­nan­cial mana’’ back in KapiMana – to this I com­mend his un­paid com­mit­ment to this community.
