Foster edging out Lester is close battle

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

It's a nail biter: Andy Foster has edged into the lead for Wellington's mayoralty over incumbent Justin Lester. But with just 715 votes in it and more than 5000 still to be counted it could all change tomorrow.

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?
