Rising rates a nightmare
With regard to the rising rates crisis, I would like to say that we pay very high rates already – Porirua City has the highest rates in the Wellington region.
That’s what we get for electing the same mayor again and again. Thanks Nick Leggett for showing us why we made a great mistake in choosing you again.
If we go for a super-city plan perhaps our rates will match those of the rest of the Wellington area, which, by the way, is often less that half of what we pay.
I totally agree with the editorial (July 1) that the council is spending without a thought to the residents of Porirua.
I think the council is making life harder for its residents. I see no reason why we should fund council adventures.
Mr Leggett, let’s forget that our families do not have enough to eat and keep them warm in winter. Still, just as long as the council has enough in its pocket.
Porirua is fast moving towards being the city where many people live below poverty line.
I guess no-one cares, as long as
