Cr Maxwell travels

2nd March 2020

I’m astounded that $1348 is to be spent on a short 3 day trip to Ashburton by Trevor Maxwell. Is he travelling by private jet and staying in 5 star accommodation, I wonder. I assume he’ll acquire airpoints at ratepayers’ expense.I’m off to Australia soon. My airfares (with luggage and full service), accommodation for a week and spending money will come in under that. Can we, as ratepayers who are funding this trip, please have an itemised break down of how that money will actually be spent? Can Cr Maxwell also please give us a full written report of the visit? That way those of us cynics may be placated in some small way.
