Last letter to Wellingtonian

The Editor,  The Wellingtonian,  Wellington

08 December, 2017

 Dear Editor:

 It’s a sad day that the Wellingtonian is ceasing publication.. But the best part of it went out earlier this year when the Letters to Editor section was dropped.  Subjects which the readership wants to bring up will generally be the most stimulating and useful for democracy.  We are living in a time when it is most important to bring new perspectives into the conversation because the world has changed fundamentally.

e-mail to Phil Tyford on the lost opportunity in Wellington to tackle climate change

31/10/2017

Mr Twyford,

“Aging infrastructure”?  The wire system is not that bad that you can make a mockery of the so-called move to electric buses.  The cost of keeping the electric system upgraded is offset by the cost of taking the wires down.

Here you have an opportunity to show leadership in the reduction of CO2 emissions and you FAIL.  I know you think that FAILing on climate change is what is expected of you but it is not good enough.

Sincerely,
Richard Keller
Wellington


e-mail to Wellington mayor Justin Lester reminding him of the WCC ownership of the trolley wires

31/10/2017

Mr Mayor Lester,

The Council owns the trolley wires and they must be saved.  The Regional Council continues to push the interests of Wellington City around and have made a disastrous decision about the trolley buses.  That decision can be reversed.  Don’t let the Regional Council push WCC around.

Sincerely,
Richard Keller
Lyall Bay
