Council seeing the light

Tauranga City Council CEO Garry Poole has seen the light.

I raise this because Garry has proposed that two important questions be asked of all Tauranga citizens regarding the new 10-year plan currently under consideration.

One, ‘What do you want for your city?' Two, ‘What are you willing to pay for?'

Cr Morris said “Those questions are a cop out.” I believe he was meaning ‘I will tell them what they are getting and going to pay for'.

Thankfully two more bulbs came on. Cr Terry Molloy and Cr Bill Granger agreed that asking those important questions was the right thing to do.

Congratulations to Garry Poole and those councillors who support direct democracy! We may just have seen the beginning of a new era of consultation in this communication age.

K Evans, Tauranga.
