Council must meet Wellington’s basic needs, NOT push ideology!

This petition had 390 supporters

Situation: Wellington Council is spending our rates (property taxes) trying to get us to use Te Reo. It is spending our money on this item of personal interest to some.

Concern: While using Reo might be a fun and cultural experience for those who choose to, it is not the responsibility of a city council to make people do so. In reality, the Council’s job is ensure we have the infrastructure that makes our city work, i.e. footpaths, cycleways, roads & public transport, healthy water, competent sewage & stormwater systems, land for building, & related standards, including earthquake proofing. That’s what we pay these taxes for!

Solution: Wellington Council must focus all its activities on supplying vital infrastructure. Once all that is achieved, they can return any surpluses to the people who paid it!
