Tena koutou katoa,
Ko RangiMarie ahau, also Janine Rangi Marie Bosma
Ko Te Arawa waka,
Ko Maketu te moana,
Ko Tongariro ki Ngongotaha te maunga,
Marae: Pakira & Tamatekapua

I am the daughter of Harley & Maria Robson of Paengaroa.

As a great great mokopuna of Te Paea Kiriwera King (Kingi), who was daughter of Kaingaroa (hence Kaingaroa forest) who was also Hinemoa’s sister (hence Hinemoa point).

The original kaitiaki arahi (guides) Govenors to this area.
Now that my Whanau relatives Maureen Wakaa (nee Kingi) also an Ex MISS New Zealand & Koromatua Mitai Rolleston has passed away – both active governance roles. It seems only right – gutwise, that I step up to challenge this council for major change, seeing the Mayor Kevin Winters is asking for it.

And in the season of Treaty of Waitangi settlements – when my ancestors of Te Arawa never signed Queen Victoria’s treaty which led to Queen Elizabeths 3 courthouses established here on Te Arawa ancestral whenua including:
1. Common courthouseds for housing of cases
2. Borough/City Council chamber courthouse
3. Beehive Courthouse in Wellington

ALL courthouses instructed by Queen Elizabeths coat of arms symbol (1953- present)

It is only right I step up the mark to challenge these buggars here in this MALE dominated position!

I want to encourage locals to educate themselves by going onto RDC webiste, to see whats going on under Kevin Winters & the CEOs arrangmenets. Mostly promoting immigration & the greed for profiit business industrial arm expansion plans.

I want locals to educate themselves by watching the Daily post public notice announcements of this council, including recent poisonous metals in our water supply. & mass spraying of poisonous chemicals in a season when we have to fight to survive cold temperatures also.

MAYORS POSITION A JUDGES & PRIESTS ROLE COMBINED – MINISTERIAL ROLE
This Rotorua English colonial Mayoral position needs to be FULLY reviewed. I believe the Mayors position is one of a Judges and a Priests position combined. This is how Maori originally operated as Tohunga Govenors (Judges & Priests housed together) under Korowai (Maori Cloak) garments. So when the Korowai is worn a role of judging & priestial ministerial deeds/acts take place. Therefore this Rotorua English colonial Mayoral position needs to be FULLY reviewed to include Maori Tikanga & Kawa procedures.

Whats important in that governing is THE ORDER OF DUTY OF CARE MANAGEMENT:as follows:
HOUSING THE LOCALS NEW ZEALANDERS FIRST:
We need to look at whats been happening history-wise an investigative review of housing in Rotorua & what greed for profit businesses such as real estate agents & banks have done to house prices & home loan possiblities.
What immigration has done to housing oportunities for locals.

IMMIGRANTS first and LOCALS SECOND! Immigrants settling here have come from countries with a HIGHER $$ dollar value then ours – therefore it makes home buying & ownership far easier for them. New Zealanders struggle to get a home & property & affordable home loan, this injustice remains. Many Maori Whanau (men woman children elderly) live in freezing housing conditions including living in sheds in the year 2013! Meanwhile others enjoy estate comforts – this is a failure of the treaty duty of care crown responsibility. Any form of governing authorities first duty of care management should have been housing iwi, 2nd duty of care management is food provisions productions.

These are BASIC SURVIVAL needs to be met. I this mayor HAS FAILED in this type of LEADERSHIP role.
LOCAL FOOD PRODUCTIONS & CREATING/DEVELOPING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCALS

As I mentioned above, any form of governing authorities first duty of care management is housing iwi (people), 2nd is food produtcions provisions. These are BASIC SURVIVAL needs to be met. I see this mayor HAS FAILED in this type of LEADERSHIP role. I believe this is the true Maori government & peoples government model – an upside down pyramid model. Food productions/provisions including a NOT for PROFIT Supermarket providing practical afforable prices for locals, more oraganic community gardens & fruit & nut tree orchard productions according to seasons of year, farms with variety of food productions bird meats, mass spud plantations, eggs productions, native kai productions, aquatic farming of whitebait, koura, eel which would also develope employment.

UN-NECESSARY – MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR ROADING PROJECT TE NGAE RD:
This is un-necessary! Some common sense observations & questions/answers – can make all the differnce including. Why does EVERYONE HAVE to START WORK & SCHOOL at the same time of 9am? Why cant schools start at 9.15am or 9:30am in winter season?? Monorail idea is pathetic when it only takes 10-15 minutes to get to town anyway by vehicle, this type of stale thinking comes from someone who has too much money, does not live on eastside, lacks common sense, and supports endeavours of more Maori land aquirement.

GEOTHERMAL MINING / MINERAL EXPLORATIONS – WHERE IS GUARDIANSHIP
Where is the fierceness of Kaitiaki – guardianship of Geothermal areas? This example set by my ancestors the original guides & Guardiians. Its seems so casual that these adults promote power company expansion projects across the landscape a mass (& mess) of steel pipes to pipe geothermal sources for heating purposes of GREED FOR PROFIT gains! More promises of cheaper power prices in a repeat of business history!! And yet they fail to mention the exposure of our precious AIRWAYS to poisonous gases such as hydrogen sulphide gases, seeing Rotorua is situated in a volcanic crater bowl? And we breath enough vehicle exhaust fumes, roundup chemical spray fumes, we certainly do not need more POISONS?? We breathe it, we drink it at times, we come into contact with it by touch. I reckon we are being constantly poisoned without realising it???

What has happened to the love for this once scenic wonderland?

SPA CITY/ UP-GRADE WAIARIKI BATHING AREAS – CREATE NEW AREAS/ OR REFURBISH THE OLD?Instead of a MINING graveyard mass mess on this landscape I would prefer to see Wai Ariki (water Highest rank) used as a city of Rongoa HEALING where people come from a firstly ALL parts of New Zealand to enjoy bathing here, and then from ALL parts of the world. He aha te mea nui o te ao? he tangata he tangata He tangata! What is the most important thing? Tis people tis people tis people! This is balanced with LOCALS first also.

IMMIGRATION: END OF CITIZENSHIP CEREMONIES FOR A SEASONAL REVIEW
I believe the Mayors position is one of a Judges & a Priests position combined for the balance of power in operations. This is how Maori originally operated as Tohunga (Judges & Priests housed together) Korowai (Maori Cloak). So when the Korowai is worn a role of judging & priestial ministerial deeds/acts take place. When we compare this to English University trained Judges: the Judge has his courthouse building & the priest has his church building which to operate in. Therefore this Rotorua English colonial Mayoral position needs to be FULLY reviewed including citizenship ceremonies.

LAKE ROTORUA – OVER FLOW FROM SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT GOES INTO LAKE ROTORUA
It was good to take up the interest and concern for our moana here lkae Rotorua. I have setup a backyard observation fish tank to see what I can learn from this natrual wonder that has become over-polluted & poisoned by sewerage from those housed people populated areas. People that ALL want the best lake front views propeties. Only downfall is sewerage sooner or later gets into the lake & the sewerage overflow from the sewerage system plant, that OVERFLOWS into the lake.

MAYOR RAISED HIS PROFILE FROM YOUTH CENTRE – BOARD POSITION
I used to be a volunteer at Rotorua Youth Center when this stranger introduced himself to come onto the board of trustees there. I didnt like him back then, he seemed very false – not genuine. Not long after, I saw he was going for the RDC Mayoral position – I was completely put off by this lying ego who has proved to this point he’s just another farmer fulfiling his queen elizabeths immigration expansion plans & mining instructions from her coat of arms.

MAYORS WELCOMES TOO MANY FOREIGNERS TO BECOME NZ CITIZENS
How Kevin bloody Winters raised his profile – but all I see is another bullshit farmer fulfilling queen elizabeths coat of arms instructions especiall the foreign takeover. Go to the councils website to see for yourselves the focus is mainly towards bringing foreigners in to immigrate here, work & live here without a conscience regard for the 1St nation Indigenous peoples of Te Arawa. Giving them settlement support when NZers cannot even get settlement support!!

A FULL REVIEW OF THE TOURISM & IMMIGRATION INDUSTRYS OF THE CROWN
Lets identify the CROWN industrys mentioned. A full review of the crown of englands tourism and immigration industry is overdue! As we see tourists are now immigrating here for a takeover. Where is justice? Where is balance? Where is the original NZ identity even our speech accent is being lost!!

Lets have an UNDERSTANDING.

Artificially mixing the races the line needs to be drawn up. Where is the balance to say no more? Not coming from Kevin Winters leadership thats for bloody sure!! I enjoy tourists & welcome them – however an UNDERSTANDING is needed between locals & overseas visitors, that this is our land, the land of the Maori people & they are visiting from their own countries of birth – their motherlands. They must return to those lands.

Tourism founded upon serious crown greed for money making was never right. Genuine tourism founded upon a welcoming spirit with a balance of a challenging spirit – to bring an UNDERSTANDING & EDUCATIONAL view of these uinque geothermal wonderlands to be guarded more than ever, Maori history & Taonga (treasures), with ENTERTAINMENT, HOSPITALITY. These are actually quite opposite.

CONCLUSION:
I drive an old car, live in an old rental whare and I challenge this Mayor Kevin bloody Winters, I also challenge Prime Munster John Keys and Queen Elizabeth for Replacement.

Naku noa na,
