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.

Dear Editor,

Obviously the letter-writer “Action Time” has good eyesight. Well done you, the Captain Tama billboard is obviously doing what is it intended to do, make people take notice!

Dear Editor,

As a voter who has kept an open mind about which political party I would like to see govern this country for the next four years, I have been turned off by the ongoing criticism from the Demo Party about the performance of CIP government over the past four years.

Dear Editor,

If you weren’t tuned in to the radio on Thursday, you would not have heard a call from the deputy prime minister Teariki Heather who gave the Takitumu panel of the Democratic Party a real tongue lashing!

Dear Editor,

I am picking up on the suggestion that John Scott made recently that the Te Mato Vai petition should be published in CINews so that those issues raised by the 2000 petitioners could be read again and issues faced now could be compared with the concerns raised four years ago.

A question about Muri road

Friday June 01, 2018

Dear Editor,

I see CIP Ngatangiia candidate Tukaka Ama is promising to "fix" the road in Muri.

Dear Editor,

The Demos tell us it’s time for change and they want to govern again.

Dear Editor,

Mark Twain is said to have made this quote: “It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt”.

Dear Editor,

I was very disappointed, as were my fellow Grey Power mamas and papas from Matavera, Ngatangiia and Titikaveka, because at a meeting last week none of the three Democratic candidates who are running for three seats in Takitumu mentioned the very thing we wanted to hear them say – that a Democratic Party will do away with taxing pensions.

Dear Editor,

Finance minister Mark Brown’s response to criticism of Te Mato Vai project by resident John Scott on the Te Mato Vai project, published in a story in CI News on May 25, is pathetic.
