Chris Milne ability to do his job

Chris Little made this Official Information request to Hutt City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chris Little to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Chris Little

Dear Hutt City Council,

I am deeply concerned to read on Facebook that Councillor Chris Milne cannot do his job as a councillor due to restrictions placed on him. This isn’t fair on an elected councillor just trying to do his job.

Please provide a statement explaining this situation.

Councillor Chris Milne has also said that a staff member intentionally turned down the sound when he tried to participate virtually in a council meeting. This is shocking if true.

Please provide any details about this incident.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Little
