Man­ners

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

With ref­er­ence to last week’s report in the Kapi-Mana News of the coun­cil meet­ing con­cern­ing the changes at Porirua Whanau Cen­tre.

Although I might dis­agree with what Liz Kelly has to say, at least I have the de­cency to re­spect her opin­ion.

I note that Ken Dou­glas has stated that he has lost any re­spect for Liz Kelly and that she has den­i­grated the role of deputy mayor.

What does he think of the mayor when he tells Liz Kelly ‘‘you are not in­volved, so shut your mouth’’? I take it that he agrees.

It is dis­gust­ing that the mayor, the so-called first cit­i­zen, to pass this com­ment to any per­son and should apol­o­gise to Liz Kelly.

Per­haps he should seek coun­selling ad­vice to en­able him to ad­dress peo­ple in the cor­rect man­ner, to re­spect their opin­ions and to up­hold the dig­nity of the of­fice of mayor.
