Instant removal of CEO and deputy mayor

Can we have safety and democracy if a CEO is to have more authority than the elected local Mayor. please support by voting to remove CEO and Deputy mayor. Both of whom have publicly supported the method of supreme censorship and authority over members of the press, councillors, the mayor and members of the public. It is vital to show just how many people regard freedom to speak and the role it has played in the freedom and safety of all and the importance it has to transparent government and safe communities, free from oppression and corruption even here in NZ.

Horowhenua has its fair share of vulnerable families.  A safe, fair community is paramount to support them moving forward. 

I do not condone the abuse of council staff, councillors or the public. Present reporting on the incomplete leaked audit suggests anything from email intervention to a blocked blacklist, redirected to and screened by the CEO. The spin by CEO Clapperton and Bishop that this was necessary to protect staff is dubious. Obstructing free communication with elected officials undermines democracy and their explanation does not meet the threshold to justify this action. Nor were the public informed that emails to individuals within council may be redirected and "vetted".

The true narrative is clear that the safety of staff and all individuals is threatened by absolute authority.  Democracy and common law must prevail
