I don't believe in the 2 Maori ward councillors as they are not democratically voted in. If Maori want to be on the council they should be voted in NOT put there because they are Maori. If they are awarded these seats because they are Maori, then this is apartheid at its worst. Why are officials trying to divide New Zealanders. I would like to keep the 6 elected councilors on east and west wards and an elected mayor democratically.
