Councils really like playing their ratepayers for fools.

Letter to Press:

The salient point about the Council asking for discounted tuition fees for their staff members (Press, 11 January) is not the brazenness of this given Maryatt's salary increase, but the fact that apparently my rates are being used to put Council staff through university. Pardon me, but why? Even before the first earthquake I had two houses of the same GV, one in Christchurch, one in Marlborough, and my Christchurch rates were almost three times higher than for Marlborough. It's not hard to see why. Let council staff pay their own tuition out of their own fat salaries.
