Committee favours status quo after discussion over Maori wards

Committee favours status quo after discussion over Maori wards
- A heartfelt, emotional discussion preceded the Hastings District Council-Maori joint committee's decision yesterday to recommend that the council not introduce Maori wards for the district at this time. It was not a unanimous decision and there were compelling arguments on both sides.
In the end though it came down to the vote, with the majority of the committee in favour of retaining the status quo, but keen to explore more options to increase Maori involvement in all council business.
