It has become apparent that certain factions are pushing the pro-amalgamation barrow in the Wellington region. And these are certain business interests who are primarily the Natz supporters in the Wellington region. Dozens of radio advertisements were aired in recent days. These would have cost thousands of dollars.
This is totally unbalanced because the anti-amalgamation group does not have the funds to compete with the pro-group, despite 80% of residents polled indicating opposition to a Wellington Super City.
I will be asking Labour, the Greens and NZ First to indicate their support or opposition to a Wellington Super City and whether they would review any decision made to push through a Wellington Super City.
