MEET THE CANDIDATES
I see in The Leader this week, that five of the Councillors standing for re-election are the same five that failed to keep their oath to serve and represent the people of Upper Hutt regardless of their personal feelings towards the citizen or the nature of the issue, promising to facilitate a citizen or group to navigate and understand Council processes and represent them and their issues to Council.
COUNCILLORS - Chris Carson – Blair Griffith – Paul Lambert – Glenn MacArthur – Dave Wheeler – have all blatantly failed in their sworn duty.
They are, in my direct experience, never to be trusted, a vote for them is to vote for people who abuse and misuse the trust and power invested in them. They only serve themselves and the Incumbent Mayor.
It is time for new faces, younger faces, diverse people, who have serving Upper Hutt at heart, people with progressive 21st century awareness.
Tracy Ultra, is a person who is proactive in the community and stands up and fights for the rights of Upper Hutt. She is both visible and accessible, she has my vote, as does Helen Swales and Angela McLeod.
I will research the other candidates and make my choices accordingly.
What is assured is that I will not vote for the five oath-breakers.
We love seeing Neighbourly members mentioned in the news - and we've seen a few in the last few months. From a Neighbourly group that has united the masses right through to a neighbourhood who rallied to deliver a 250kg piano to two blind sisters - there is a lot of good going on in Neighbourly communities around the country. You can read about them right here in our latest blog post.
