MUST-READ COUNCIL POST
What I am standing for:
✅ People and the environment first.
✅ Community connectivity and engagement - with each other and with our council.
✅ Effective and efficient spending of ratepayer's money.
✅ Housing - Affordable homes (that are actually affordable) and high-density housing.
✅ Sustainability and future-proofing - more green spaces, more biodiversity (more planting of native trees), safe cycleways to encourage people to use their bikes (part of infrastructure too).
✅ New initiatives to help combat suicide, domestic violence, mental illness, and homelessness and assist the working poor.
✅ Hemp farming and medical cannabis - I believe this bill is going to pass in the national referendum next year. Hamilton needs to be prepared. There are millions of dollars to be made for our local economy, and potentially hundreds of jobs to be created. (This does not mean recreational cannabis).
Can anyone recommend a good cattery in Hamilton pls
Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.
Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.
What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?
