Greg Mccracken New Shareholders’ Councillor for Southern Northland

Today, following the close of voting in the Shareholders’ Council by-election in Southern Northland, Greg McCracken was announced as the successful candidate.

Mr McCracken, who has been farming in the Northland region for more than 30 years and currently farms at Wellsford, will take up his new role effective immediately.

Shareholders’ Council Chairman, Duncan Coull, welcomed Mr McCracken to the Council and congratulated him on his election.

“Succession is important for our Council and I look forward to working with Greg. I trust he will represent his Shareholders and the Council with diligence and integrity.
