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.

    would be nice to hear the promises Tuku made in order to gain his vote. Big ups to Te Arataura for slashing 1.9million from the budget.To the Taupiri maunga crew of Ed and the boys, your budget increase was a long time coming eh brothers? Hemi got your back on that 1. Kingi or sonny for chair I say. Not Hemi Rau, We need a pitbull to shake up those other idiots on the board and Hemi the perfect candidate for that job. Set em loose ATTACK. Can’t have a pitbull as chair, too much leash around the neck.
