Marian Hobbs removed as Otago Regional Council chair

From Morning Report, 7:52 am on 9 July 2020

Marian Hobbs has been ousted as Chair of the Otago Regional Council yesterday in a successful leadership coup.

Andrew Noone, who was one of nine councillors who signed a letter to roll Hobbs as leader, was elected as the new Chairperson.

Hobbs is looking forward to facing her political opponents in future - who she says are using rumours to discredit her leadership.

Noone speaks to Kim Hill.
