The Watchdog

Keeping citizens in the loop

About

Hi!

I am Penny Bright  Media Spokesperson for  the  Water Pressure Group.

Through my involvement with  this group I have  become a Judicially recognised ‘Public Watchdog’ on Metrowater and Auckland regional governance matters.

I have also been publicly acknowledged as an “Anti-corruption campaigner”.
I have started my  blog so that those who are not on  the email can access the information .

I was an Auckland Mayoral candidate – standing to help STOP THE $UPERCITY – the corporate takeover of the Auckland region, which has been forced upon the public majority without our lawful consent through a ‘binding poll’.

‘PUBLIC WATCHDOG – NOT CORPORATE LAPDOG’:

My email address is: waterpressure@gmail.com

I stood in the Botany by-election as an independent candidate, on an anti-corruption / pro-transparency, anti-privatisation/asset sale  platform.

I believe that is is high time that NZ got our ‘House’ in order, and established the legislative framework to prevent and fight corruption, and ensure genuine transparency and accountability in local and central government and within the judiciary.

I am currently standing in the Auckland Council Howick Ward by-election on the following ‘platform’:

NO RATE$ INCREASES!

CUT OUT THE CONSULTANTS AND THE PRIVATE CONTRACTORS!

OPEN THE BOOKS!

GIVE US THE NAMES OF THE CONTRACTORS;  SCOPE, TERM AND VALUE OF THE CONTRACTS!

BRING BACK COUNCIL WORKS DEPARTMENTS!

PROVIDE COUNCIL SERVICES ‘IN-HOUSE’ AND CUT OUT ALL THOSE PRIVATE ‘PIGGIES -IN -THE -MIDDLE’!

If private sector provision is SO ‘efficient’ – then how come over the last 20 years rates have gone up  – not down?)

  1. Hi Penny,

    If you want to have some fun and land yourself on the highest moral ground just sign your letters with a nice neat proper legible signature and ask them to do the same.

    You will find that they cannot and you will win each round through their dishonour.

    Regards Rod

  2. Dear Penny,

    I am trying to contact you on behalf of Harbour Sport.

    The North Harbour Sports Council would like to invite you, with all other Mayoral candidates, to participate in a Mayoral Candidate sporting forum, Monday August 16th, during the lead in to the new Auckland Council Mayoral elections.

    The North Harbour Sports Council (NHSC) represents 80,000 members, from 19 sports, within the North Harbour Region.
    The purpose of NHSC is to:
    • Strengthen engagement between Council and sport;
    • Build sport organisations’ knowledge of Council processes; and
    • Build Council’s knowledge of the needs of sport and how they can best be met.

    There will be 200 sport representatives invited from the North Harbour Region to listen to you speak at the “Mayoral Sport Forum”. This forum will provide you the opportunity to outline your position on the value of sport and the policies that you will implement to support this under the new Auckland Council structure.
    Can you please contact us Riki Burgess Sport Capability Manager on 09 4154646, or send me you contact details so we can send you a formal invitation, and details fo the structure of the debate.

    Regards
    Richard Casutt
