Te Tawharau Announces Hauraki Candidate

Te Tawharau leader Tuariki Delamere today confirmed that the party's candidate for the Hauraki electorate would be Tunuiarangi (Rangi) McLean, a fifteen year Manurewa resident of Tuhoe, Ngati Porou, Waikato and Scottish descent.

Rangi McLean would easily be the outstanding candidate in the race for the Hauraki electorate,” the Hon Tuariki Delamere said today from Whakatane. “His work in the local community has already been recognised by his election to the Manurewa Community Board and Manukau City Council committees and he has the confidence of his own Tuhoe people having been elected to the Tuhoe-Waikaremoana Maori Trust Board.”

Mr McLean who has a Diploma of Business and is in his final year of completing his Master of Business Administration is currently the manager of the Manukau Peoples Centre. Prior to that Rangi worked for twenty years at Eveready NZ rising to management as Production Supervisor.

He is well known for his tireless efforts in working with the socially disadvantaged, low income and unemployed sector throughout South Auckland and being successful in creating employment opportunities for them. With his superb interpersonal relationship skills he has been able to successfully develop programmes for creating a better understanding among the diverse cultures that make up South Auckland.

Other community appointments include:
· Chairperson, National Advisory Council for Community Organisations Grant Scheme (COGS)
· Chairperson, Te Taura Here O Tuhoe ki Tamaki Makaurau
· Trustee, Manukau Work Trust
· Trustee, Te Tira Hou Sports and Cultural Club
· Maori Warden for Te Haahi Ringatu
