White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.

What do you think of the choice of our new deputy mayor?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Taupō Times

Hi neighbours,
In a departure from recent tradition, third term Taupō District Mayor David Trewavas has opted not to make the highest polling councillor his deputy.
Rather than Kathy Guy, he has instead appointed mayoral rival councillor Christine Rankin as his understudy.
REad why he chose Rankin here.
So what do you think? Should the mayor choose the highest polling candidate or go with who he feels is the best choice?
