Pagani on Wellington priorities

Josie Pagani writes:

Fifty-seven per cent of voters in Wellington want their city council to fix their ‘’pipes and water infrastructure’’. It’s their highest priority.

Two per cent want more cycleways, the lowest priority.

The council has reflected voters’ preferences by agreeing to spend $226 million on more cycleways. However much it might have spent on fixing pipes, they continue to eject effluent on to the streets with metronomic regularity.

Voters don’t dislike cycleways. They are over the priority placing they get compared to other civic enhancements.

Exactly. We need a Council that will focus on core services and facilities such as water, playgrounds, libraries, parks etc and less on white elephants.
