Waiheke Local Board Inaugural Meeting

Written by on November 6, 2010

The atmosphere at the inaugural meeting of the Waiheke Local Board was electric. A significant portion of the community were upset about the selection of Faye Storer as board chair over Denise Roche and the allocation of board portfolio positions. They turned up in numbers to express that concern. The meeting had placards, heckling, walkouts and high emotion. The videos above demonstrate the level of feeling at the meeting (please note that the views expressed in the video titles are those of the person taking the video and do not necessarily represent the position of Waiheke Radio) . Interviews with Faye Storer, Denise Roche, Mayor Len Brown and highlights from the meeting can be heard here.
