Civil Defence are?

Ralph Darcy from Central Whangarei

Makes you wonder what all the fuss is about when today we get siren warnings with a 8.0 earthquake near the Kermadec island Raoul and yesterday in the same area there was a 8.1 and no warning from Civil Defence? Can anyone explain why the difference response from CD.

Moving forward

Glen from Central Whangarei

I would like to share this as I hope it will be a link to a positive story moving forward.
I had Steve Smith from North Chamber meet me for about an hour at my home office today.
I feel it was an excellent productive meeting Steve said he enjoyed the meeting.

I am trying to raise awareness of the many skilled people wanting to work, this may include disabled people, Maori, and others struggling to find employment and less likely to be given opportunities that may lead to work.

I would like to see the media write positive stories about high achievers and those not so high but giving it a go. Steve was surprised at the statistics I was showing him re-employment and opportunity.

I would like to see good things for our city and our people and look forward to working with North Chamber on ideas creation, problem-solving, and solutions that may work.

I am also finding WDC easier to work with using my own organization to improve the lot of the disabled and everybody else, as I explained to Steve if we can improve accessibility for disabled people you improve accessibility for everyone.

My approach I think is to take a big picture and concentre on fixing the broken bits.
