Lead by example

Congratulations to Cr Raj Kumar for his stance on adjusting councillor’s salaries during this unprecedented time, when thousands of ratepayers and other citizens are suffering financial hardship (News, April 9). In my view, his stance is a morally defensible one. I smiled at Chadwick’s assertion that it is “Morally i defensible”. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is not ruling out a pay cut in her salary. Moreover Wellington City Council recently moved to voluntary cut the salaries of its mayor, councillors, and CEO. Why can’t we do likewise? To quote Raj Kumar: ” This is na way to lead by example”.
