Do you support the Council’s initial proposal for representation arrangements for 2022?

There is no rational apart from supposedly higher electioneering costs for keeping to 2 wards. Councillors represent the whole city. Election should be city wide like that of the mayor. If we are getting 2 Maori ward then the number of councillors need to be reduced from 12 to 10 so that the overall total is still 12 and not bloat up to 14. A significant increase for ratepayers.
