Dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council Protests gather momentum

People are not happy in the Hawkes Bay

People are not happy in the Hawkes Bay

Sources inside the Hawkes Bay Regional Council have been leaking all this year about how dodgy the council is, and how arrogant and unpleasant the staff are. Some of the stories are hard to believe, and will come out over the next few months.

The Council has managed to create enough anger that a group of major employers in Hawkes Bay have undertaken the first proper third party campaign at a local government election. The employers are mainly apple growers and they were facing ruin when the HBRC cut off their water and refused to do anything to help. The regional councillors were completely deaf to the pleas for support which annoyed the growers even more.  
Third party campaigns are totally unregulated and it is good to see people stand up to the petty, overpaid bureaucrats who don’t understand their job is to serve the population not dictate to them.

We need more campaigns to hold more ratbag councillors to account, and make councillors take responsibility for ratbag bureaucrats.

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.
