We missed the story about the Mayor and council cutting back on their free lunches.
They should have kept their lunches and cut their spending further instead.
It would seem that both Waitakere and Auckland City can manage to keep rates between 2 and 3%. Why not the shore? Where are the real priorities on spending reductions?
No wonder the Mad Mayor and his little coterie of minions cut back on lunches when they overspend on finger food and drinks!
