Hookers with the pox are trusted more than Auckland Council

I can’t believe they needed a survey to find out that there are disgustingly low levels of trust in Auckland Council.

Aucklanders have low levels of trust and satisfaction in Auckland Council, a survey has found.

According to the council’s Citizens Insight Monitor, only 17 percent of 3015 respondents trusted the council to make the right decision and only 15 percent said they were satisfied with its performance.

The survey showed views worsened the further out from the city centre a respondent lived.  

The survey gave the council an overall score of 45 out of 100.

Auckland Council chief executive Stephen Town said it was clear the council needed to work harder to earn public trust and confidence.

The results were similar to a recent nationwide survey conducted by Victoria University, which showed only 12 percent of respondents had either complete or “lots” of trust in their local council.

When you have a ratbag Mayor who refused to quit when busted with his pants down, and massively increased rates, it is little wonder that Auckland Council isn’t trusted.

Chalk this up as another legacy of Len Brown, the failed mayor.

Note that the further from the CBD they live, the angrier they are. When billions are being spent on a rail loop, which won’t benefit a single resident on the North Shore or further North, you can understand why.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
