Inappropriate conduct by two Wellington city councillors at a public meeting has forced the city’s mayor to issue an apology.
Wellington city councillors Sarah Free and Chris Calvi-Freeman stirred up a war of words over transport issues when they attended a Greater Wellington Regional Council meeting this week.
Free, the city council’s public transport, cycling and walking portfolio leader, demanded that regional ratepayers stump up their share of any maintenance or repair costs for the capital’s roads when new, heavier double-decker commuter buses start operating next year. …
Calvi-Freeman, who holds the transport strategy and operations portfolio, could be heard saying “b…….” through a muffled cough at some comments made by a regional councillor.
Not exactly happy campers are they.
