No one has right to change history

LETTER

Why are they deceiving us?

I was shocked when I read the Gisborne Herald,”we have voted 13-1” so the name Poverty Bay will be changed to include another name. There is something sadly wrong when no consultation is allowed for the people who live in this area. This is our history. Also coming into the city on the Back Ormond Road at the 50k area we have a name on one side and Gisborne on the other. They have taken liberties behind our back. How confusing for visitors.

Lets get rid of the council and the mayor. Familiarity breeds contempt. A vote of no confidence should be given to our council and a referendum should be held. We pay our taxes and rates, and we should have a say in what happens in our community.
