Manipulation shouldn’t be our foundation. Hamilton City Council must build on truth.
Hamilton City Council has shot itself in the foot with its own propaganda rag after a copy incorrectly talking up the Claudelands Event Centre had to be pulled.
The blunder, which will see 55,000 copies of City News binned, has cost ratepayers $7400 and left one councillor calling it at best incompetent and at worst “sinister.”
City News, the HCC monthly newsletter had already been signed off, but was pulled last-minute by chief executive Richard Briggs after councillors alerted him.
He said due to “factual inaccuracies” it would not be distributed.
