Council has lost the faith of the public

Michael Forbes at Stuff reports:

Wellingtonians are losing faith in the ability of the city council to make decisions in the best interest of the city.

Just 31 per cent of people who participated in the council’s own resident satisfaction survey this year felt the council was on top of things as a decision-making body.

Last year, that number was 55 per cent, and in 2010 – the last year of the previous council – it was 61 per cent.

That’s a huge drop off in confidence, and the current Mayor and Council have to take responsibility for this. In just three years they have had 30% of Wellingtonians lose faith in their ability to make decisions that are good for Wellington.
