FIRST RANGITĀNE APPOINTEE SWORN IN AT COUNCIL COMMITTEE
The Palmerston North City Council and Rangitāne have entered a new era of joint decision making. The first meeting of the council's environmental sustainability committee on Wednesday welcomed Rangitāne's appointment Chris Whaiapu to the council table.
He was the first of three Māori to be appointed to sit alongside councillors at committee meetings.
Danielle Harris will join the community development committee and Ruma Karaitiana will sit on the economic development committee.
They will have voting rights at committee meetings, but not at formal council meetings.....
