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.
No more junkets on our rates. Auckland Councillors should vote NO to joining the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group
