Fit­ting trib­ute

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

It ap­pears that coun­cil mem­bers are about to re­ceive a to­tally un­earned and un­war­ranted pay in­crease. In­stead of mak­ing ‘‘a profit from some­body’s death’’ surely it would be pos­si­ble for in­di­vid­ual coun­cil mem­bers to do­nate their un­ex­pected wind­fall to one of the strug­gling char­i­ties in the area (for ex­am­ple the Food Bank, SPCA, St John).

This would ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity and pay a fit­ting trib­ute to Mr Her­lihy’s long ded­i­ca­tion to and involvement with the peo­ple in this area. J Ver­non Toko­roa
