Auckland Councillor Richard Hills and Franklin Local Board member Logan Soole are among the 12 percent of the country's elected members under 40. Before last year's elections that number was just 6 percent.
UPDATE: Auckland Emergency Management advises that the rescheduled sound test for the Orewa Tsunami sirens will take place on Monday 23 November. The sirens will be activated three times between 12pm and 12.15pm. This is just a test and the public is not required to take any action.
