Dear Sir / Madam

OPEN LETTER TO

TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL NEW ZEALAND

RE AUCKLAND SUPERCITY CCO MODEL

In a democracy, the rule of law is meant to protect the rights of citizens, maintain order, and limits the power of Government.

The revelations that nobody who is anybody has carried out a ‘cost-benefit analysis’ for the SuperCity CCO model are a serious concern to our democracy.

The powers that be that have rammed the process through are unable to corroborate the ‘cost-effectiveness’ of their experiment.

I was shocked to find that:

  • the Royal Commission didn’t do one – ignored their ‘terms of reference.’
  • neither did the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA)
  • or the Office of the Auditor General (OAG)
  • or the Treasury
  • or the State Services
  • and all eight Councils in the Auckland region.

As well the public of Auckland were denied the right to a binding vote on the SuperCity.

What does Transparency International New Zealand publicly have to say about the alarming conduct of the Government of the ‘least corrupt country in the world’?

Transparency International New Zealand’s objectives are to promote transparency, good governance and ethical practices in the private and PUBLIC SECTORS in New Zealand.

What is Transparency International New Zealand doing about the government of the ‘least corrupt country in the world’ that is thumbing its nose at your organisation’s objectives?

Yours sincerely
