Waikato region over-governed, local Chamber of Commerce says

From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 22 April 2021

Grossly over-governed and desperately in need of reform - that's the view of the Waikato region from its Chamber of Commerce.

The region has about half-a-million people and is served by 12 councils with 136 councillors.

The chamber wants the region to have a united and stronger voice but with less bureaucracy.
