Native Affairs - Update Mayor Judd

By Renee Kahukura-Iosefa

Last week we brought you the story of New Plymouth District Council mayor, Andrew Judd, who claimed New Zealanders were in denial about racism.

As part of his on-going battle against racism in local body politics Mayor Judd made a submission all the way to the United Nations, seeking support for the establishment of Maori wards on local councils. 

Native Affairs can reveal that the United Nations is backing Mayor Judd.
