The Young and the Political

We speak to three of the youngest successful candidates in last month’s local body elections: Twenty-year-old Jack McDonald who is the grandson of poets James K Baxter and Jacqui Sturm, and the new chair of the Paekakariki Community Board; Rotorua District Councillor Tania Tapsell, 21, who is the great niece of former Speaker of the House, Peter Tapsell; and, the country’s youngest local body politician eighteen-year-old Latham Martin.
