2021 – Your council, who speaks for you? Representation review responses
Do you support the Council’s initial proposal for representation arrangements for 2022?
Tell us why? User comment
The proposal to have 14 councillors will result in an over large group making agreed descision making more difficult. I wrote earlier suggesting :
Retain east west delineation with three councillors to represent each area.
Have two city wide Maaori candidates.
The Mayor to be voted in by all the councillors.
Make being a councillor a full time job well paid say $200,000pa with the Mayor $300,000pa. This would attract capable applicants.
The Council will hear verbal submissions on Tuesday 9 October 2021. Do you want to speak about your submission at this meeting?
