I would like to voice my concern as to the short period of time it took for our newly elected members to vote themselves a nice pay rise. This is at a time when there are so many people in our area who are living below the poverty line and are finding bit hard to live on a daily basis. We have children going to school without breakfast or lunch.This is where our elected councilors should be focusing and I suggest they donate all their pay rises to charity where as a city we will be able to assist those in need.
Another 10 double passes to SIX60 have been drawn for our Neighbourly members! We have 100 double passes to give away as well as an exclusive concert by one of the supporting acts from the SIX60 tour.
To be eligible, make sure you are a verified Neighbourly member (need a hand verifying your address? Click here). We’ll also need to see you being more Neighbourly, whether it’s posting to your neighbourhood, replying to questions or inviting your neighbour to join the site (we’ve put together a few ideas here).
We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.
By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
