Matamata-Piako mayor Jan Barnes
The festivities are beginning, Christmas decorations are on display and Christmas cheer is around us as we enter the festive season. I’m sure you are all looking forward to a break and spending time with your family and friends.
It has been an excellent year in the Matamata-Piako district and I would like to thank everyone in the community for playing their part in making our district such a vibrant place to live.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year as your new mayor and have appreciated my interaction with so many of you.
I wish you and your family a safe and happy festive season.
