Update on the Petition to remove The Trusts' monopoly in West Auckland 22 June 2019
We made a decision not to submit the petition in time for the vote to be added to the local body elections later this year.
We are over (yes, over!) the 15,000 signatures needed for the Waitakere Licensing Trust, but we need to be sure that enough of the signatures are valid (i.e. address matches the electoral roll). To be safe, we think we need another 5,000 signatures on top of what we have now.
Where to from here?
After a few days rest and a regroup, we’ve made a plan and set a new target to submit the petition by September 30.
There’s no question there’s sufficient appetite for a vote in West Auckland. The challenge is one of resources and access to busy locations for collecting signatures. If Countdown had allowed us access, the petition would have been complete many months ago.
So, where to from here and how can you help?
