Phils Folly

John from Warkworth

Anyone else staggered by Phil Goff's commitment to stick with a 3.5% rate rise?. It's like he has his head in the sand, hasn't been briefed on C19 global financial shock, or alternatively doesn't give a hoot about ratepayers and residents. Surely Phil understands the … View moreAnyone else staggered by Phil Goff's commitment to stick with a 3.5% rate rise?. It's like he has his head in the sand, hasn't been briefed on C19 global financial shock, or alternatively doesn't give a hoot about ratepayers and residents. Surely Phil understands the implications for ratepayers when treasury forecasts up to 30% unemployment as a consequence of C19 lockdown (s), and similarly appreciates that now is the time to back off some of those grand plans for auckland central that will no longer have tourists to use them, to defer support for an America's Cup that wont happen until 2022 and insist upon deferral of all other non essential projects plus implement a wage reduction across council of 20% (himself included). I encourage all ratepayers and workers to directly express concern to the mayor and his leadership team for this bizarre commitment to rates rises. The mayor can be contacted at following email address phil.goff@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

Covid-19 (My personal perspective -concern - going in to Level 3)

Annie Neighbourly Lead from Army Bay

I'm concerned that the silent inference is that other age groups of people and of varying health are NOT contracting Covid-19 This is absolutely not the case. I'm talking about our perspective not what we are actually being told. The reality is that Covid-19 is not discriminatory and we can all contract it, but most can recover at home in isolation in their bubbles. It's people with underlying health problems like asthma / heart issues / cancer patients etc (the vulnerable) and elderly that are being hospitalized. I'm worried that when we go in to Level 3 that we will let our guards down and that the efforts and sacrifices of individuals, families and businesses will be jeopardized. Please NZ'ers, limit your travel, stay at home in your bubble unless it's really important to get out, don't take risks, keep social distancing going and wash and dry your hands often. This will give us the best opportunity to get into our new normal of a new New Zealand where we can be safe, healthy and productive. Stay strong Kiwis - Kia Kaha.
