The first letter is from Area Commander Rod Drew, it was emailed to Edwin Perry of NZ First, dated 28 July 2003, in response to FORMAL COMPLAINTS regarding the fraud and gross malfeasance at the former Carterton Community Centre and the role of Beyer in covering up the criminal offences - which is why Beyer was forced to resign from parliament in DISGRACE and has been unable to get a job since and doesn't dare show 'her' face in the Wairarapa.
The letter says:
(- Note there is no salutation, no Dear Ms Raue or anything)
"RE: CARTERTON COMMUNITY CENTRE ASSETS
I refer to your letter dated 23 July 2003 seeking Police intervention to prevent the disposal of assets.
The issue around the election of officers and the administration of the Carterton Community Centre has been addressed in previous correspondence.
The New Zealand Police are not the authority charged with the responsibility of regulating the activities of Community Committees.I am aware that the Carterton District Council members, the Carterton Mayor and MP Georgina Beyer have recently discussed issues around the closing of the centre.
In such circumstances the actions of the 'elected' officers of the centre are highly unlikely to have breached any Criminal Law.
The Police have no authority to intervene as you request.
(Signed) R T Drew,Area Commander Wairarapa
- What a crock of BULL! The complaints were of FRAUD, and THEFT - not to mention assault causing grievous bodily harm - two broken teeth!!!
Firstly, we need an inquiry into the corruption that resulted in the closure of the former Carterton Community Centre, and the actions and involvement of people associated with the Carterton District Council. The purpose of this is to hold people accountable and honestly assess their suitability for involvement in community affairs through a proper social audit, and weed out the rotten apples, the people in the District Council who are holding the town back, holding the District down. Then we can get on with identifying and electing capable honest people to replace the incompetent and corrupt ones, and send the message that the people of the Carterton District are not going to put up with second rate governance any more, we're going to do things differently now, because it's the putting right that counts. Vote for Kate Raue and let's put the unity back in this community! Let's elect someone who is not only colourful but capable as well, the Audit Report is an utterly damning indictment on McPhee and Beyer, so are the crime, violence and suicide rates.
Secondly, we need a proper Community Resource Centre, run by capable and honest people, not the grand half planned Events Centre, or the Information Centre/Gallery, which is focussed on providing a glorified attendant paid for by someone else to staff the "Gallery" promoting local artists like those featured at the post titled Art Fart Stinks. Artists like Jo Roffe and Sean Crawford were the focus of the last community centre, and are the reason it was closed, by Sean Crawford's father John and mother Heather and their mates, after funding stopped when the funders became aware of the fraud and misfeasance. If artists want to make a career choice of what for many of them is a glorified hobby, why should taxpayers fund it? I'd quite like to swan round all day being an artist too, but I'd rather do an honest day's work. I've never felt the need to apply for $1000 grants to have an exhibition in a free gallery, come off it Sean, you're a bludger, way worse than any WINZ beneficiary.
When I was running the Community Centre it focussed on getting people into employment, creating jobs, helping people access resources and information, supporting families, and running courses that really benefited individuals and the community. It operated as the hub of the community. We ran Community Gardens and provided practical help to establish gardens in every home, we provided practical assistance to those in need.
I represent the Residents and Ratepayers who voted for me at the last election, and who have signed petitions calling for a proper inquiry into the matters regarding the Carterton Community Centre, Event Centre, Community Facility, and the general dysfunction, incompetence and corruption at the Carterton District Council.
Beyer the Liar's fervent sales talk in favour of amalgamation is aimed at furthering the cover up and keeping the same old snouts in the trough. The ones pushing the idea are the same ones responsible for the global financial crisis, their lies only fool the ignorant, the ill informed and the gullible, and we must speak up. The world is watching.
