I was shocked when an employee told me about her rented living conditions. Mould in her bedroom, possums living inside the walls, wood lice creeping out of holes and lack of adequate heating. What’s wrong with some landlords in town? Why do you think it’s okay to house people in these conditions?
I got a bit of a shock a few weeks ago when news broke of an alleged armed robbery at a downtown liquor store. The carjacking that followed and high speed pursuit that ended in a quiet country road near Arrowtown is not the kind of thing the Wakatipu is known for. Nor is it the kind of thing we want to be known for.
