More Maori wanted on councils by mayor

6:44 am on 28 July 2010

Gisborne Mayor Meng Foon is concerned by the small number of Maori on local councils and will be raising the issue at a Local Government New Zealand hui this week.

He told Waatea News that only 5% of his council are Maori and only a small number of Maori are going for places on councils around the country.
