Investigating investigations

Council/ratepayers have now spent/wasted something like $2 million on numerous museum 'investigations'. They are now investigating investigations. A majority of ratepayers, the silent majority, don't want a ratepayer-funded museum. They don't want to fund this carry-on, especially with nothing to show but a bunch of pretty pictures from Jasmax again. In 2009, when the waterfront museum was stopped, Jasmax was paid as part of the in excess of $800,000 for its concept drawings. Larry, Terry and other councillors supporting this don't care if they fail 10 times. They only have to succeed once. This issue will once again come to an expensive and futile head. When it does it will be Larry, Terry's and a few other councillors exit strategy at the next council election. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I want a museum

B Faulkner is one of those reasons why Tauranga is always at least three steps behind Hamilton, which has a very good museum, in the main street and central to all.
