Concern for iwi over proposed Wellington Super City arrangement..

Former Carterton Mayor Ron Mark says his iwi of Ngāti Kahungunu will be shafted in the proposed Wellington Super City.

The Local Government Commission has made recommendations to amalgamate the nine councils of the Wellington region, but Mark says Iwi will be left worse off.

Though his time is taken up with the daily grind of Parliament, Ron Mark’s heart still lies in the Wairarapa.

“There is a Treaty settlement in process. In fact there are two over there, Rangitāne and Kahungunu, and it is in those treaty settlements where the final decisions about how Māori see themselves playing a governance role in their rohe will be settled, in there, nowhere else,” says Ron Mark.
