Dec 7, 2017 - Reports out of the council regarding the “sudden water crisis” were Mayor heavy with political spin to the fore. Its a bit difficult to believe that the residents of Napier were able to save such a large amount of water when they had no idea there was a crisis!
Victoria White’s front page article in Wednesday’s Hawkes Bay Today includes in the first couple of paragraphs Mayoral comments such as - - Napier City Council has denied it was “caught off guard” - there were a “ special set of circumstances leading up to it”. Then the spin begins, the amount of which kind of indicates that there is a distraction going on here so that no more questions will be asked.
So what was the cause. Maybe an IT type equipment cut out? Whatever the cause the citizens of Napier have a right to know what it really was and do not need to be subjected to political spin that trys and fails miserably to sweep it all under the mat.
