Petition: No more junkets on our rates
This week Auckland Council’s Development Committee will be debating whether to join a new coalition of cities to share information on climate change. The group, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, is to gather in Mexico City next year.
It is clear that sending a group of Councillors and Council officials to Mexico City will cost tens of thousands of dollars of ratepayers money - money that will have already been earmarked for the development of Auckland.
We need a Super City looking after Auckland, not one determined to get involved in international diplomacy.
