Our new DCC Chief Executive Officer is supposed to execute decisions made by Elected Representatives, but instead has been making political decisions and has signed a Trespass Notice excluding Dunedin’s by far highest polling Councillor from DCC offices and Debating Chamber, claiming authority under 2015 Health and Safety legislation and non-compliance with a vaccine pass.

Further CEO Graham claims include that an Elected Representative could adequately perform staff-interface, representative and debating round the Council table functions by remote zoom having been singularly excluded from Council Offices. The wholly unsatisfactory business of conducting just Council meetings … Continue reading

I am withdrawing from the planned NO JAB NO JOB Debate planned for this coming Saturday.

Reasons outside of my control include being unable to confirm an adjudicator or get responses today from the convenor. I still think the Debate is a really good idea and hope that it still proceeds without me.

RAINBOW CROSSING FLAGGED

Showing ‘support and solidarity’ by using public funds to fly politicised flags just advertises and reinforces divisions in my view. That is why opposing armies fly different flags as they go into battle, to reinforce slight cultural differences rather than … Continue reading
