A good foundation

I bet you didn’t expect to see that headline, did you, given that Paterson will be in the mayor’s chair.

But look! the balance of power in this thirteen-vote configuration is in the direction of reason. We elected EIGHT councillors who have said they’re against the extension: Allen, Holland, Hutchison, McLaren, Neill, Osanic, Schell, Stroud. This is a HUGE improvement over the last council. We can work with this.

And we will: look for a meeting within the month to consider next steps.

We’ve already raised awareness, gathered information, and started to share it: we are in a much stronger position on this issue than we were a month ago. Thanks to all of those who have participated in Wellington X discussions in so many ways. This blog will be a little more, shall we say, relaxed for a while, but it will gear up as needed… so stay tuned!
