Since the election we’ve had a Powhiri at the Town Hall, an Expo where we were able to meet some of the Auckland Council officers – particularly people from the CCOs.
We had the inauguration on Waiheke yesterday so it all feels a bit more official.
What a fabulous day. Thanks to everyone who came, and also those who were there in spirit. What a proud and humbling moment.
Especially wonderful was seeing so many of the community there and also to have the acknowledgement of Piritahi Marae and to have Whaea Huhana karanga us into the Hall.
