Community board chair and deputy appointed
A new Turangi Tongariro Community Board chair and deputy have been appointed following former chair Andy Hema resigning to take up the position of the council’s community relations manager in Turangi.
Interim board chair, and former deputy, Te Takinga New was confirmed in the position at today’s monthly board meeting, and Pauline Jenkins-Lyons was appointed as deputy. Both appointments were unopposed.
The board decided not to advertise an extraordinary vacancy given the proximity to the local body elections in October.
