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
Support: Mayor elected at large, 2 Maaori councillors, East and West wards.
DO NOT support: Retaining all existing councillors
Reason: With the 2 additional Maaori councillors there is no justification to retain all of the 6 existing councillors in each ward. Also, dropping their individual salaries will lead some of them to dilute their focus through alternative employment.
The Council will hear verbal submissions on Tuesday 9 October 2021. Do you want to speak about your submission at this meeting?
