First up...If you're going to share this on Facebook PLEASE sign it too - Thanks! A vocal minority, unhappy that their choice for mayor did not get elected, wish to push through a change back to an FPP (first past the post) system, in a thinly veiled attempt to get Dunedin's most divisive councillor in modern times elected as a minority mayor! A petition has been created by their supporters and it felt appropriate to 'balance the scales' Why FPP is undemocratic, and STV is a much better system:

NO COUNTRY FOR ELITE/SEXIST/RACIST WHITE MEN
