Napier councillor 'very uncomfortable’ over social media scrutiny

From Morning Report, 6:09 am on 26 August 2019

Napier City Councillors who oppose a controversial new pool complex have had their Facebook posts searched by senior council staff, including the chief executive, looking for possible code of conduct breaches.

Councillor Maxine Boag told RNZ reporter Anusha Bradley she thinks it's entirely inappropriate for staff to trawl through councillors' social media pages looking for anything they may have done wrong.
