Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.
Watching the CITV the other night I was impressed by Nooroa Baker telling the people about the roads in Akaoa, and how he met with two ministers and both said they would do something about it.

In light of recent comments published in the Cook Islands News about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, may I encourage kindness and respect in all of our communications.
There has been much in these last few days to write about and I echo Political Observer’s wish to see the Opposition’s open letter to PM Ardern generate more debate and opinions expressed through your columns.
