Address to Henderson-Massey Local Board 7 March 2013
Madam Chair, Ladies and Gentlemen
At the meeting on 7 February, Madam Chair, I said I had not received the courtesy of a reply to my email to you dated 2 January. When I spoke to you next day, you demanded an apology from me. I said I would apologise publicly because that is my way. I apologise.
I would like to point out, however, that I had no reason to believe that emails addressed to the official advertised addresses of representatives on the Council website would not reach addressees. I expanded upon that matter at a full Council meeting on 28 February. The Council passed a unanimous resolution at that meeting to remove blocking.
On 8 February I sent you an email, Madam Chair, asking what the formal response from AT had been regarding the questions I put to this Board re Te Atatu Rd over 4 months ago. I know you received my email, Madam Chair, because you confirmed so in our phone conversation at 6.45 pm that night.
Is the reason I have received no response from you because you have not yet received a formal response from AT or is it because you have received a response but you are as yet undecided as to whether or not it is formal? I also asked you for the date upon which such a response was received. One way or another, Madam Chair, I would appreciate the courtesy of a response from you.
