Ked­g­ley clar­i­fies

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

While I dis­agree with my col­league Paul Swain on some is­sues, such as trol­ley buses and light rail, I have the ut­most re­spect for him, and cer­tainly did not call him sneer­ing and su­per­cil­ious at a re­cent re­gional coun­cil meet­ing, as re­ported in your March 10 is­sue.

My com­ments were made in the con­text of the re­gional coun­cil’s re­fusal to sup­port the Welling­ton City Coun­cil’s in­no­va­tive and pos­i­tive pro­posal to pay for a trial of capped fares on buses.

I pointed out that this at­ti­tude could be in­ter­preted by other coun­cils as be­ing su­per­cil­ious and un­grate­ful.
