Yes
Ticked No
Please tell us why
I believe in cross the city representation elected on the Single Transferable Vote model. The two ward model as far as I am concerned shows up a significant flaw! There are pockets in each of the wards that do not appear to be represented adequately around the council table: Maori, ethnic groups, south east Hamilton,community groups, youth, etc. I believe that we should have Community Boards! We just need this layer to hold the so- called elected twelve councillors to account for their actions and, in a lot of cases, inactions.

3. The Council will hear verbal submissions on Tuesday 9 October 2018. Do you want to speak about your submission at this meeting?
