Council to blame
I wonder if all these hate letters toward Cr Corban is being used as a way to detract from the main issues.
The council spent more than $80,000 on a dog that attacked two rabbits.
The council lost in the high court to the tune of $380,000 plus costs.
The council has had a blowout to the tune of $250,000 on a wastewater plant.
The council erected a sports stadium that has increased our rates in our district where we have people living in poverty.
All of these incidences have happened under what we thought were the eyes and ears of our ratepayers, the elected council members.
These council members in the year of an election are now trying to push the blame on to staff members and blind us with a council roll book, when if they did their jobs as paid elected members they WOULD have picked up these mistakes way before we inadvertently picked up the bill.
In regards to H Lodge’s letter, we may not be in debt like other councils but when you look at the towns you have mentioned how do those towns look? How is employment there?
Because those very towns you mention do not look run down, they look fantastic.
And they attract tourists, which in turn creates wealth within their districts which then creates jobs.
South Waikato has one of the highest rates of people moving to Australia.
I would rather have a small amount of debt and employment figures up, than no debt and a dying town.
So while these clowns try and blind you with attendance records, or grandstand on sharing their wealth – remember we can get rid of this expired stock in October. It’s time this district stands up and votes.
