Verse of The Day
“U tonu hoki toku whakaaro, e kore te mate, te ora ranei, e kore nga anahera, nga rangatiratanga ranei, e kore nga mea onaianei, e kore nga mea e puta mai a mua, e kore nga mana, E kore te tiketike, e kore te hohonu, e kore tetahi atu mea hanga, e kaha ki te momotu i a tatou i te aroha o te Atua, i tera i roto nei i a Karaiti Ihu, i to tatou Ariki.” (Romans 8:38-39)

Frank Newman

The suggestion of a binding referendum on the naming of Ngunguru triggered some heated debate at last week's Whangarei District Council full meeting.

Councillor Frank Newman moved the motion to hold a referendum to establish the degree of public support for the proposal to change the name of Ngunguru to Nung-a-roo. Although it was seconded, when it came to the voting Cr Newman was the only one in favour.

He said that both Maori and non-Maori residents in Whangarei should have a say on the issue and that WDC had not consulted with the public.

Full story...

(Yes, it's another slow day.)
