Mary Byrne spoke at the Kaipara District Council on Wednesday the 26th of July 2023. Kaipara Council has not yet been given a Directive but have been sent a letter of intention by the Director General of Health.

Even though they have not received a Directive, we believe they still could apply for an Inunction. 

Regardless Kaipara residents need to take this time to educate their local representatives so if/when the Directive does come, the councillors will be fully informed as to why they should not automatically comply with the DG’s directive.

Mary also met with the Mayor of Kaipara when she was in the area and believes this mayor is sympathetic to this cause.
