Go to this link https://www.westernbay.govt.nz/council/agendas-and-minutes and for each meeting, council, sub group, ward and community board you can evaluate for yourselves the calibre of representation.. I am not going to name anyone but look for repetition that tells a story of elected members who are paid, and consider how this could impact decision making for our communities.
Do a tally of those on leave
Do a tally of those late to meetings
And do a tally of all apologies
Work out the ratio of absenteeism across how many meetings. Consider the tardiness. Make an informed decision.
