It has been an interesting year for sure.
Actually, I have to say as someone that has been living this nightmare for around 10 years now, this last year has shown more progress than most. If you would like to get onboard with us please sign our petition.
I would like to thank the people that help me on this site and the corresponding Facebook pages. To be quite honest if it wasn’t for the group of you I would have given up and quit long ago.
Tracey, Neil, Karen, Rachel, Andrew thank you so much for all the time you put in to help the cause. For all the others that have helped and I have forgotten to mention thank you so so much as well.
We did get a little bit of media coverage this year.
We were on Radion Live with Ali Mau. I think she actually saw another side of what was going on. I really tried to highlight the issues on both sides of the equation.
Although I cringe everytime I hear my own voice here it is.
Also we were on Newstalk ZBb. Again an eye opener. Hopefully rather than focusing on just the people that don’t pay we managed to show some issues across the board.
No I should not be anyones spokesperson, however noone else was offering so I guess it is what it is.
When it comes to helping people we found a great resource this year. CS Advocates have helped out so many of our community. They are not a free resource, but certainly way more affordable than hiring a lawyer so I definitely recommend tham.
I am a firm believer that the way forward is never to sound like a bunch of bitter people. I strive to calmly present the facts and core issues with the incumbent system.
Emotions always run high in this arena. And I get that as well.
Good luck to you and please reach out to me anytime.
