I’m grateful to the Mauao Trust Board for meeting with Chief Executive, Marty Grenfell, General Manager Community Services, Gareth Wallis, General Manager of People and Engagement, Carlo Ellis, and myself this week.

While the new Council has yet to be inaugurated, we felt it important to immediately begin the process of engagement and collaboration with the owners of #Mauao, our treasured and loved #taonga.

Mutual trust and respect is the bedrock of any strong collaboration and I look forward to leading this to ensure we develop a shared understanding of how to better care for the #Maunga.

I am confident that, together, we can resolve the base track slip expediently while also working more strategically on the environmental management of Mauao in the future.

Once the new Council is inaugurated next week, I look forward to working with Cr’s Elect Steve Morris and Dawn Kiddie to further progress our relationship with the Mauao Trust Board.

He maha nga mihi.
