It seems that the wanton destruction of the tribal finances caused by the outgoing executive committee (Morgan, Maipi, Te Ao, Moana Tuwhangai etc.) has caused the new batch of Te Arataura executives to seek cutbacks to their own meeting fees. That’s good news, and lets see them go even further by capping executive fees and slashing spending by stopping the troughing that has become a routine feature of the executives.
It shouldn’t be hard to do after all the millions that got burned on all sorts of trash over the last few years when those fools (Morgan, Maipi, Te Ao, Moana Tuwhangai etc.) acted like they had an open check book and they weren’t too shy about it either.
Finally, some common sense is beginning to show through. We like that.
