No Changes To Waipareira Board

There were no changes to the Te Whanau O Waipareira Board following the west Auckland organisation’s Annual General Meeting last night.

Two positions were up for grabs but following a vote at the Hoani Waititi Marae, Stephanie Harawira and Rocky Tahuri were voted back onto the Waipareira Board.

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” Waipareira CEO John Tamihere told whanau after the votes had been counted.

“This Board is doing a wonderful job setting the direction and securing the future of Waipareira.”

Stephanie and Rocky will now stay on the board for three year terms. They re join Board Chairperson Josie Smith, Deputy Anaru Martin, Dame June Mariu, Evelyn Taumaunu Raymond Hall, Moyna Grace, and Clint Rickards.

“I take this as a vote of confidence for myself and Rocky,” Stephanie says.

“This also says we as a Board are taking Te Whānau O Waipareira in the right direction.”

Whanau gathered at the AGM were told by John the organisation was debt free “and that’s not bad in these tough times.

“It’s been a tough 12 months and it’s not getting any easier but we will be scrapping for what whanau are entitled to.

“That’s our role as their advocates.”

Te Whānau O Waipareira Trust has more than 25 years' experience in health, education, justice and social services. As a nationally recognised provider, the Trust offers pathways for whanau, ensuring families are at the centre of everything it does.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems.
