Gar­dens make mark

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

I am a re­cent new­comer to the district and I am writ­ing to say how im­pressed I am by the amaz­ing gar­dens I see in the city area, at Aotea La­goon, Pare­mata, and in some of the sub­urbs. I do hope the gar­den­ers in­volved read this let­ter and know their hard work is ap­pre­ci­ated. How they have man­aged in the very hot days we’ve had in re­cent weeks says some­thing for their work com­mit­ments. you’re a bit of a hoot aren’t you?

Your lit­tle rant about our mayor may have fooled some but it’s a jolly good thing the ed­i­tor of this fine tabloid pointed some­thing out – you want his job.

Well of course you are go­ing to be dis­parag­ing aren’t you? I have never been en­am­oured with those who would try to curry favour by trash talk­ing oth­ers. You need to try to wrench his job from him by prov­ing your­self and not by try­ing to be­lit­tle Mr Leggett.

And really, us­ing the fact that he pays a quar­ter of the us­age for the may­oral car? He shouldn’t have to pay any­thing, he’s the mayor for Pete’s sake. I take it then, from your com­ments that if you do win the may­oralty (snig­ger, you won’t) you won’t be us­ing the car or will be paying for the full use of it, yes?

Can we have a prom­ise of that? It’s a moot point really be­cause Nick Leggett will win. He has my vote, you don’t, and there are many of us out there who feel the same.

And one last thing, how come you failed to men­tion in your let­ter that you plan to run for a seat, any seat at the next elec­tion? It’s our pol­icy to iden­tify (likely) can­di­dates among cor­re­spon­dents when an elec­tion is loom­ing. Let­ter writ­ers with po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions are en­cour­aged to be forth­right about it — Ed­i­tor.
