Councillor-elect Newman Blocks Rather Than Engages with Constituents

Is that a way to treat voters?

 

Acid tests is something it seems Councillor-elect Daniel Newman has issues in dealing with.

An issue was brought up in the community pages on the Great South Road traffic congestion. The chat was calm and different ideas put forward. I tagged Councillor-elect Daniel Newman into the conversation as it warranted a Councillor to keep an eye and even discuss the issue. For my efforts the Councillor-elect has blocked and can no longer really participate in the conversation.

Is it really fit for a Councillor to block people en-mass that he might not agree with or people that might ask questions?

Nope it certainly is not. Questions of his fitness as an elected representative will soon be asked if he keeps up that school like behaviour.
