Inquiry Into Auckland Council Produces Whitewash
Inquiry Into Auckland Council Produces Whitewash - Libz
Several months ago, Waiheke and Great Barrier residents made serious allegations against Auckland City Council's staff, and an inquiry was begun. "Unfortunately," says Libertarianz Leader Peter Cresswell, "there is nothing in the inquiry's report that reflects the serious accusations of maltreatment made by residents. The inquiry was an exercise in obfuscation," he says, "and I think we must respond."
"Hundreds of people made submissions to the inquiry," reminds Cresswell, "many recounting tales of dreams shattered by heavy handed bureaucracy - or even of demands for sexual favours in return for resource consents. Many made their submission at great personal cost. They have been ignored."
"This report has been produced to get Auckland City Council off the hook," says Cresswell. "No more, no less. Like Tom Sawyer painting his fence, the Auditor General has been out with the whitewash, and I think we should respond to that appropriately."
TELL THEM IT'S A WHITEWASH!! Cresswell challenges those similarly disgusted with the Inquiry's whitewash to send a bottle of Twink to the Chairperson of the Local Government and Environment Committee, Jeanette Fitzsimons, at Parliament Buildings, Wellington. LET''S GET THEM AWASH IN WHITEWASH!! For further information about the abuses of power exercised by Auckland City's officers, refer to:
