Eye on DHB/GDC finances

LETTER

It was very interesting reading about the deficit of the Tairawhiti hospital board. Two of its members are also councillors who are running for Mayor. This is the council that has freely spent bucketloads of money on a new library and council offices, rather than combine the two under one roof and let space to a cafe or other income-generating business.

So, Rehette Stoltz and Meredith Akuhata-Brown are responsible for a hospital deficit in the millions and for the luxury spending and rates increases of the GDC. I’ve done my maths already and know who not to vote for.
