Open Letter to All Tribal Members of Waikato Tainui
Open Letter to All Tribal Members of Waikato
I have asked my Office to ensure this
letter gets to as many Waikato Tainui tribal members as
possible, knowing the limitations of time and contact
information available to them many of you may not get a
copy, therefore I apologize. To those of you who wish to,
please make contact with my office and we can then get one
sent to you. My aim for this letter is to communicate to as
many of you as I can my recent decisions in relation to the
upcoming Kauhanganui & Te Arataura meetings scheduled for
the 25th November and December 2012. My wish is that you
will all gain an understanding of what is happening based on
what I have been exposed to and engaged in regarding these
long drawn out issues. Let me start with “My Review”
which I present to you point by point.

Update: After a seven hour caucus meeting David Cunliffe has announced Chris Hipkins and Carmel Sepuloni as new party whips and said the Labour council will hold an independent review into the election result. He did not comment on any leadership vote.
