My choice of video from a week's work at Hawke's Bay Today ☺
This week I spent a day in Wairoa, covering the lead-up to and the aftermath of the local body amalgamation announcement, with Hawke's Bay Today reporter Amy Shanks. The anti-brigade won the referendum, much to the delight of 88% of Wairoa voters.
