“My vision is to chair Council in a fair and transparent manner, ensuring that we display integrity, independence and sound judgement in our decision making.”

At the same meeting, Blue Read was re-elected to the position of Deputy Chair.

Mr Read, who owns a dairy farm north of Urenui, has also been a Councillor since 2001.
