$3m boost for Wellington economy

I was pleased to support a new Economic Fund for Wellington at Council yesterday. Thanks to CEO Kevin Lavery for proposing it.

I was however a little disappointed that my colleagues didn't support my amendment for a six monthly report back on the performance of the Fund, instead only wanting some information on activities of the Fund on a yearly basis.

This fund will be worth $6m, it is easy to spend other people's money so a little transparency would have gone a long way to make sure that this money is well spent.
