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.
