Posted on July 20, 2014 by admin in Lisa McNab, NewsLisa McNab, MANA President, and Annette Sykes, outgoing MANA President and candidate for Waiariki
Lisa McNab was officially passed the mantle of MANA President in a special ceremony at Potahi Marae in Te Kao this week, following her unanimous election into the role at the recent MANA AGM.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for MANA and to have such a role. There’s such an energy and buzz amongst our people for change. That’s a key focus of MANA right now – to assist our people to get involved to help change the government and herald in a new set of policies to support whanau and communities” said Ms McNab.
Ms NcNab is from Te Paatu, Ngati Kahu, Te Rarawa, and Te Aupouri and has been a long time advocate in Maori health for whanau and hapu and in whanau and community development at the grass-roots.
“There’s no one better for the job” said outgoing President, Annette Sykes. ”Lisa has been a great Co-Vice President for the MANA Movement, and will now bring her considerable skills and experience to the role of President.”
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed heading such a dynamic movement for social and political justice and change, but my focus now is on winning the Waiariki seat and joining Hone in Parliament.”
