Fran O’Sullivan writes in the HoS regarding the billboards gone up over Auckland. I think I was first to cover these on Thursday, and since then many more have been e-mailed to me. Here’s another:
Fran points out the shoddy stats being used by the Council to justify their proposed billboard ban, and that the vast majoirty of complaints have been about real estate signs and sandwich boards – not billboards.
Also noted is how the hearings panel on the proposed ban is made up exclusively of Councillors who voted for the ban. Such independence!
