2020 ELECTION : CANDIDATE PROFILES
Tena Tatou Ngati Whakaue whanui
I have proven history as a generator of new ideas and breakthrough thinking, and able to lead and encourage toward the best possible outcomes for all. I have 30 years of experience across forestry, agriculture, fisheries, tourism and recreation management. I was the initiator of the Whakarewarewa Mountain bike track system in 1995, with the vision to for-see how this would transform the Rotorua economy. I am experienced across government and private sector roles, with my current national role involving managing the upskilling of NewZealand’s red meat sector. In my heart of hearts my love is for our people and our environment and I believe I offer a unique opportunity to refresh the NWTLB for the coming era where restoration of Papatuanuku must take precedence. He uri whakaheke ahau no Whakauekaipapa, He Pononga noa hoki mo koutou, e te iwi e aku whanaunga.
“Ngotea te wai o te kākahi – kia Ngāti Whakaue ai tō tū.”
I whakapapa to our Ngāti Whakaue tribal lands through both my kuia Moana Rika and koroua Ihaia Kereopa. My whānau, who are kaitiaki of our whenua Maraeroa at the mouth of the Utuhina in Ōhinemutu, have experienced first-hand the impacts of intensive farming, urban development and industrialisation on our tupuna awa, roto, ngāwhā, whenua, taonga species, and the health of our hapū. The commercial interests of the iwi are well represented by current trustees and I would like to help restore balance in terms of ensuring our responsibilities as hunga tiaki of our whenua are met. I humbly put my name forward for the Ngāti Whakaue Tribal Lands committee of management in the hope that my voice may add value around how best to utilise our collective resources for the wellbeing and benefit of all Ngāti Whakaue whānau.
Tēnā koutou Ngāti Whakaue, it is a privilege to put my name forward for re-election for a further term of governance for Ngāti Whakaue Tribal Lands Incorporation. My collaborative working style and wide-ranging governance experience (including local government and iwi organisations) means that my influencing networks and strong trusting relationships accompany me into this role. I bring a practical problem-solving approach founded on years in operational leadership roles and a commitment to providing positive outcomes for Ngāti Whakaue whānui, while understanding delivery within financial parameters. Whilst continuing to provide oversight of our farming business operation, NWTL is implementing projects (housing, training, employment opportunities) critical to the future wellbeing of our Whakaue shareholders first and foremost, Te Arawa and the wider Rotorua community. I am keen to continue working hard for you and see current projects through to fruition always focusing on delivering for our people ensuring our rangatahi and mokopuna have a future where they can flourish to their full potential. “Whiria te kaha”
Tamarapa Lloyd (mokopuna of Tangonui and Julie Kingi – my mum is Helen Kingi)
Kia ora koutou o Ngāti Whakaue, it has been an honour to sit on the Board of Tribal Lands for the last six years. We have made steady progress on our objective to diversify and grow the Incorporation. I would like your support to remain on the Board. Positive change and forward momentum takes time and the right governance ingredients for success. Tribal Lands is on the threshold of implementing our vision to transform the Incorporation and I hope to remain part of the team that delivers these benefits to our owners over the next three years. In my every day mahi/work I am a professional advisor in the Māori sector working with central and local government, iwi organisations and land entities.
TANIRA TE TUPARA KINGI
Tena tatou Ngati Whakaue. It is my privilege to put my name forward for re-election for the NWTL Committee of Management for 2020. In the last 3-years as the deputy chair of NWTL and chair of Whakaue Farming Ltd (WFL), the committee of management has made several significant gains to establish NWTL as leading Māori economic authority. I am fortunate to have gained a wide range of governance experience as a director and trustee on other Ngati Whakaue entities (Pukeroa Oruawhata Trust), as well as Te Arawa boards (Te Arawa Management Ltd, Te Arawa Primary Sector Group and Manaaki Ora) and national organisations (Landcorp/Pamu) as well as number of government advisory groups. My work as a research scientist with Scion also allows me to identify key issues that will impact on the incorporation. Continuity of governance is important to the stability of any organisation and with my two Committee of Management colleagues we ask that you support our re-election to the incorporation’s governance board. Nga mihi ake i runga i nga ahuatanga o tenei kaupapa whakahirahira.
