Pensioners Stand Against Auckland City Council
Pensioner Action Group
9th June 2002
At the public meeting of pensioners at Tahapa Crescent Community Hall, Meadowbank last Friday 7th June, the following resolutions were passed unanimously:
· That Auckland City Council reconsider its position on pensioner housing and immediately cancel its plans to sell.
· That Auckland City Council should retain its current rental policy of 25% of income.
· That pensioners cannot, and will not, move from their homes.
The meeting calls on the goodwill of the general public and the Trades Unions to support these actions.
The meeting was addressed by Councillor Bruce Hucker, Maureen Alexander of the Pensioner Action Group, and Sigrid Shayer, of the Council Housing Action Group.
