Rate Payers Alliance launch petition against Phil Goff’s Maori separatism
by SB on September 30, 2017 at 2:30pm

[…] You may have seen in the news that Auckland Mayor, Phil Goff, wants separate Auckland Council seats for Maori, in addition to the existing Independent Maori Statutory Board, whose unelected members already sit on Council committees.

This morning we’ve launched a petition speaking out against Phil Goff, and his complete disregard for the voices of Auckland ratepayers – the very people who pay for Council seats to represent them.

The petition […] hopes to encourage hard working ratepayers, just like you, to stand up and tell Mr Goff how you want your voices to be represented by Auckland Council.

A referendum would give all Aucklanders the opportunity to say who they feel best represents their voice, and who advocates in the interest of all ratepayers. Phil Goff wants to deny Aucklanders of this chance, and we think this is wrong.

If you agree with us and want to make sure your Council continues to accurately represent your voice – please sign our petition at www.ratepayers.nz/call_for_ referendum.


There is no need for racial separatism inside our local or National government. Separate Maori seats were needed when the ability to vote was tied to land ownership more than a hundred and fifty years ago. Those days are long past and one person one vote should be the sole basis of our democratic elections. Anything less is both racist and apartheid.

Decision on race based seats should be referendum

Press Release: Auckland Ratepayers' Alliance
Decision on race based seats should be referendum
29 September 2017

Any decision to change the makeup of Auckland Council should be put to the people as a referendum, says the Auckland Ratepayers' Alliance.

Jo Holmes, Spokesperson for the Auckland Ratepayers’ Alliance says, "Auckland ratepayers already pay millions for the Māori Statutory Board to give Māori a voice at the Council table."

"If Māori seats are to be added into the mix, that decision should be up to Aucklanders not professional politicians."
