After last night’s meeting of the Pinelands Residents and Ratepayers Association, at which Bertie Lourens of Wasteplan spoke about the progress made with regard to the recycling campaign, we finally got onto the mailing list of the DA’s Councillor for Pinelands, Brian Watkyns (I’ve tried a few times since we’ve moved here, and finally it’s worked!).
In his newsletter, I read that Mayor Helen Zille is a finalist for World Mayor:
“Did you know that Cape Town City Mayor Helen Zille has been selected as one of the finalists for the World Mayor Award? She is one of 820 top mayors from across the world, and selected as one the 50 FINALISTS for the title! Support the Cape Town City Mayor by voting on the World Mayor Website: http://www.worldmayor.com/! Voting closes on the 30th of June 2008.”
If you like her and what she’s done for Cape Town, do go and have a look at the site. You can also read some of the comments left by others here.
