Council Logo Wellington's Economic Priority

MEDIA RELEASE

COUNCIL LOGO WELLINGTON'S ECONOMIC PRIORITY

29 APRIL 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Responding to the Wellington City Council’s decision to ditch the $24,000 logo which the Council launched in November, Jordan Williams, Executive Director of theTaxpayers’ Union says:

“Following the criticisms of spending too much on things that don't matter, it appears that councillors couldn't help paying more for creatives to have another go."

"What confidence can Wellingtonians have in the Council when this is the priority of the committee responsible for Wellington’s economic growth? No one moves to a city because its council has a fancy logo.”

“Talk about tackling the issues that don't matter. Perhaps its time we stop paying councillors on a per meeting basis.”

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
