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?

Loans that suit small businesses

Prospa

When Francis Swart’s home-based Auckland skin and beauty business “Gorgeous You” experienced a period of rapid growth, she realised it was time to expand into a larger space.

After experiencing the run-around from traditional lenders, she came across Prospa on social media. They provided her with the funds she needed to open a new salon premises and do a complete fit out and refresh, all with an easy-to-manage weekly repayment plan that suited business cash flow.

Next step for Francis is to work with a business coach to grow the business further – and Prospa will be right alongside her.
