Mov­ing out of the ques­tion

South Waikato News - - NEWS/OPINION -

In my hum­ble opin­ion the saga of Ti­rau mov­ing is not an op­tion. Think about this. Com­pet­ing with Mor­rinsville, Mata­mata and Te Aroha would put Ti­rau in a worse po­si­tion than it is now, Ti­rau would get noth­ing in re­turn.

For the Ti­rau coun­cil­lor to ad­vo­cate this move is self-serv­ing as all his busi­ness in­ter­est are in Mata­mata.

Please let’s stop this de­struc­tive talk about leav­ing the South Waikato dis­trict. For me it’s bet­ter the devil you know than the devil you don’t.

Also for our coun­cil­lor to say in the Ti­rau meet­ing that he does only at­tend meet­ings with a Ti­rau agenda is not serv­ing our dis­trict ei­ther.

Just imag­ine our Toko­roa coun­cil­lors do­ing the same when Ti­rau is on the agenda?

Re­mem­ber that a coun­cil­lor gets voted in by ward but makes de­ci­sions for the whole dis­trict.

He also said he does not get paid enough to be a coun­cil­lor. When he took on the po­si­tion he knew it was vir­tu­ally a vol­un­teer po­si­tion. To com­plain now is a bit rich. As a lawyer he should know that.

Peter Schulte, Ti­rau
