Councils should stay away from business

Wellington is allowed to know

Christchurch is allowed to know

But why isn’t Dunedin?

I have asked D Scene to print Tim Hunter’s column from 29th August but there seems to be something scary about so much truth.

It has yet to appear here.

Read the column and ask yourself, “Why is the rest of the country allowed to read this, but not directly effected Dunedin?”

About Lee Vandervis

My name is Lee Vandervis and I was born in Balclutha 60 years ago to Dutch immigrant parents who ran a successful building contractor business. I have been passing Dad nails since I can remember and I learned to swing a hammer usefully early in life. My parents always pushed the values of thrift and a broad education. At Otago University I gained a BA in Philosophy before going to London for 5 years overseas experience, working in electronics manufacturing and rising to Production Manager of Midas Audio UK, building mixing consoles for musicians like Stevie Wonder, Supertramp and Pink Floyd. I returned to Dunedin in 1981 to have a family and set up Vandervision Lighting Audio and Video, making it Dunedin’s largest lighting hire business, and restoring heritage buildings like Dundas st Church and 401 Moray Place along the way. I sold most of my business interests when first elected to the DCC in 2004. Dunedin City Councillor profile: http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/your-council/councillors/cr-lee-vandervis
