Two items have really got up my nose this week. The first being the sitting Mayor stating that that there will be no advertising from the Council, yet three days later we get a leaflet in the mail endorsing the deputy mayor by the sitting Mayor.
I consider that this is a blantant form of advertising. I notice that the other mayoralty candidates don’t get a mention. This canditiate should be barred from the election because of unfair advantage over the other mayoralty candidates.
Having been living in Putaruru only a short time I wonder who the ’’brilliant consultant’’ was who laid out the ‘‘In Touch’’ publication put out by the Council.
The front page shows how the votting was broken up on the pie chart.
Needless to say the largest piece (of the pie) was for the people who stated they didn’t know what to do. I fell into this bunch as there is no information as to whether it is a postal vote or having to go to a polling station.
Once again it doesn’t look good when a Mayor favours one candidate over the others.
