Andrew Judd

From Waitangi Monday, 10:35 am on 6 February 2017

Andrew Judd is the former mayor of New Plymouth who describes himself as a 'recovering racist' after experiencing a severe backlash to his proposals for Maori rights on the district council. He was spat at and abused in the street over his failed attempt to introduce a Maori ward in New Plymouth - but the experience made him examine his own attitudes towards Maori, and spurred him on to fight prejudice.
