To the Mayor and Councillors
Urgent call for the suspension of Wendy Brandon and full investigation of her conduct.
Please see the email exchange below the regards to my emails to councillors being Diverted.
This is particularly serious in that I have been questioning corruption in council for the past 7 years and my innocent questions to Waitakere city council about the use of the animal facility at the concourse by an organisation called AWINZ. ,( which in reality was a trading name undefined person or persons)
The then manager of dog and stock control ,who got his position without declaring his conflict of interest with regards to AWINZ sued me to silence me. I now have proceedings before the court to overturn the judgement which was obtained by fraud. The lawyers involved in these proceedings and whose actions are subject to the court decision are also one of the big five suppliers of legal services to council .(BROOKFIELDS)
I have been prevented from obtaining speaking rights and then when I complain about the actions of counsel for council I find that she has diverted my emails to her email address only.
I have a truck load of evidence on the corrupt use of council premises and Wendy Brandon is fobbing me off and claiming that I am contempt of court when the evidence I am presenting is in the words of MAF in their Audit report http://www.transparency.net.nz/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/final-draft-audit-2008.pdf and states
“it was at times difficult during the audit to distinguish where the structure of AWINZ finished and where WCC began hence it was at times difficult to separate the AWINZ organisation from that of WCC. For example AWINZ inspectors are not employed by AWINZ but are all employees of WCC page 9 all personnel ( including the AWINZ inspectors ) based at the WCC animal accommodation facility (48 the concourse ) are employees of WCC It must be noted that AWINZ does not have any employees as such , apart from when they contract to the film industry to monitor AW issues, this did lead to some confusion regarding he demarcation between the two organisations”
Rate payers money was being used for a private enterprise and Counsel for council both past and present have covered this up.
I happen to think that this is serious .. what else is being covered up ?
Just this week I gave submissions to the local government electoral committee and asked why we bother with elections when it appears that the council lawyers run the place. We could actually save a lot of money.
If council was run as a business Ms Brandon would be placed on suspension while the investigation into the diversion of emails is investigated especially when these emails are complaints about her action. What else is she concealing from councillors ????
I know for a fact she is also blocking LGOIMA requests, not just mine but those of other people as well .
As a rate payer I like to think that the people we vote into council are the ones who are in control and not the hired help. I also have an expectation that the council which enforces laws on the residents also complies to the law with the same vigour and not by ignoring section 14 of the local government act 2002 by acting in an open, transparent, and democratically accountable manner.
We should be encouraging whistle-blowers on council corruption my story is enough to ensure that any one will remain silent.. the cost has been too high and there are those who would rather discredit me than look at the fact. If you are not sure about me ask ALF , we worked together in the police he is aware of my ethical standing.
It is interesting that what I questioned years ago appears to be exactly what is going on today , council employees stepping out of line and acting as if they own the council.
I would love to address all of you on corruption in council , I am not defaming any one, I am speaking the truth and can present it as pure fact , I have no doubt that what I will reveal will be an eye opener and will enable you to will be able take action to prevent t rate payers money from haemorrhaging from the council coffers.
