Here’s the response from Mark Peck for Lambton Ward.

1. WCC should work with Government agencies and the likes of DCM to find practical help for the homeless, like a home!

2 Look at smaller buses for travel through town, some dedicated cycle lanes and car free zones.

3 Not sure. However I am also not sure that the spine report has the solution either. Needs a fresh look.

4. 80% of all Wellington business is small and medium business. Treat these businesses with respect.

5 Suggest to Government that they stop cutting the public service.

6. Wellington needs more jobs and less unemployment.

7 Access to good shared spaces, sports fields, libraries and special events.

8 Promote school visits around the concept of community engagement and the importance of citizenship.

9 I have a recommended emergency kit,plenty of water in places where I can access it easily. Nothing unusual in my kit.

10 I never ask for a vote. I am available to serve. If voters think I can contribute they might decide to vote for me.
