Ordinary people powerless

Opinion Piece

Look at this “democracy in action” in Gisborne! We elect councillors in the belief they will do one thing but, once they get into power, they do something totally different — and we can do nothing about it until the next election.

Many ordinary people in Gisborne feel powerless against the unseen, unidentified people who actually rule our city and are never held to account.
