Call for mail­boxes

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Mana MP Kris Faafoi is call­ing on NZ Post to lis­ten to the 93 per cent of Aotea res­i­dents who want a mail­box in their ex­pand­ing sub­urb. Mr Faafoi re­cently wrote to more than 1250 res­i­dents ask­ing them whether or not they wanted a mail­box in their sub­urb. ‘‘I felt com­pelled to ask be­cause of the num­ber of Aotea res­i­dents com­plain­ing that there was nowhere close to sim­ply post a let­ter. The re­sponse we got back was over­whelm­ing, with 93 per cent of res­i­dents who replied say­ing yes to a mail­box.” A let­ter has been sent to the chief ex­ec­u­tive of NZ Post to re­quest that a mail­box be put in the sub­urb as soon as pos­si­ble. “It’s un­fair that older sub­urbs get to have their mail needs met, but newer sub­urbs don’t,” Mr Faafoi said.
