Poll: Should Wellington city councillors get a free lunch?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

There's no such thing as a free lunch, unless you're a Wellington City councillor.
Six years after Andy Foster led moves as a councillor to scrap catered lunches at committee meetings - saving ratepayers $40,000 - the new mayor has now decided to reinstate them. He said the backflip followed pressure from councillors, while also promising to spend less on the midday spread than previous councils. "People felt when you didn't have lunches provided on days when you were working through [into the afternoon], councillors tended to disappear all over the place to get lunch. It reduced team bonding." What do you think- should councillors get lunch provided?

Poll: How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

About 1000 deaths, thousands of injuries and extensive destruction from Wellington up the east coast of the North Island - this will be the result of a tsunami triggered by an 8.9 earthquake in the Hikurangi subduction zone under a scenario presented by GNS Science.
The scenario, in a report prepared for the purpose of developing a response plan, is considered serious and credible, but comes with the obvious caveat that there is no way of telling what any earthquake or tsunami would look like. How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?
