A vote of no confidence in the Mayor and Several councillors of the DCC

I have started this petition which will be presented to the Minister for Local Government. The Mayor and several councillors have pushed through policies  with little or no public consultation,the latest being the change of speed to 10kmh in the CBD .This was done by the Mayor using the Covid 19 argument it will be better for the public and reduce the risk of infection . This happened within a matter of days and the signs were already printed before the vote at council was done. This was also do

Re-open the sale yards

COVID-19 shut down our sale yards but now we desperately need to have these re-opened, particularly in areas like Hawke's Bay where severe drought is having a major impact. Hawke's Bay farmers are currently facing what may be the worst drought in history, and the situation is compounded by the loss of the sale yards - an avenue of selling that the majority of farmers know well and have ultilised in the past. Other regions are also under significant feed pressure and would benefit from sale yards

Stop the Greytown Trust Lands Trust from holding the Greytown Community to Ransom

The GTLT was established in 1871 with unsold sections from the early development of Greytown. Its purpose, set out in a parliamentary act, is to primarily assist education, but including libraries, physical welfare, other cultural purposes, and maintaining and promoting in the district the general well-being of the public. 150 years ago there was a real need for education support but now much of this is provided by central government.  The GTLT directors are holding our community to ransom by th

Bring Mock Exams and Study Leave Back

 The decision to cancel mock examinations and study leave at Westlake Girls High School was one made without the input of the student body- the people that this decision effects the most. The value of practice examinations and study leave is monumentally more than that of only two more weeks of teaching time. This decision should be altered if the student body wishes it so. In this current climate, where there is so much uncertainty having our practice examinations is vital. Considering that man

Save Renee's Box.

Hi I'm Renee I'm a mother of a 6 month old boy and a 12 year old dog. Renee's box is my business and vocation. Without warning the Sunday before last I was sent a message on Facebook saying half my space was being taken from me. (this being my outside area, shown in this picture). Which makes it impossible for me to open my shop. I was given no reason for this and I know the businesses around me are supportive of me as I have spoken to the majority about this already and they are behind me. This

CAP SOUTH WAIRARAPA DISTRICT RATE RISES TO 2% FOR THREE YEARS

South Wairarapa District Council (SWDC) consultation documents create an impression that the SWDC is raising rates by only 2%. That is not the case. The Council plans to increase its annual operating expenditure by 18% for next year – see page 24 of Council’s supporting information for consultation. There is smoke and mirrors around the figures but it is clear that rates will rise over the longer term from Council’s proposals this year by at least 13%, and likely more especially if the Greytown

Support a vote of no confidence in the petition for a vote of no confidence in Dunedin Councillors and the Mayor

Unfortunately many people do not understand the process of democracy and despite the recent democratically conducted local council elections, because they did not get the mayor they wanted they somehow believe the democratic process was not followed. Some of these people are unable to deal with the fact that there are other people out there that have a different opinion to them, so everytime a decision does not go in their favour they spend a lot of time and effort on social media moaning about
