Council largesse extends

Manukau City Council has approved a 40% increase in Directors’ fees for two of its Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs) Manukau Water and Tomorrow’s Manukau Properties.

The increased fees were approved by the Council Corporate Governance Committee behind closed doors earlier this month, but have only just become public.

People's Choice have demanded answers.

[quote]“Peoples Choice says it’s hard to understand why such large increases were recommended by Council officers. It’s not as if the business environment for these two monopolies has become any more difficult over the past twelve months. We’re calling on the Council to outline its reasons.”[/quote]

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
