New leadership required

LETTER

Re: Protecting the bailiwick, Oct 28 letter.

Mayor Meng Foon has had nearly five terms to deal with the rates. Instead, when elected he promised to keep a low rate take — how dopey is that?

I asked him the same week that the Labour Party chose a new leader why he did not also fall on the sword.

I have said in a previous letter to the editor that you people who want all the goodies that go with a nice city will have to pay.

The Deputy Mayor is a lovely person and needs to take the reins. The mare we have is getting lame and ready for the glue factory . . .

Well said Ray . . . Mayor Meng Foon has become arrogant, just like the National government.

You people, Meng Foon got less than 8000 votes, a minority number in reality considering the voting population of Gisborne. Meng is a typical career politician. The "yes" man, as he is famously known for round town . . .
He is well outdated to take our community into the future, and I think he knows it.

    Should Gisborne switch from plastic rubbish bags and stickers for waste collection to official GDC paper bags, or move to wheelie bins for waste and recycling?
