It’s Andrew Judd’s last full day on the job as mayor of New Plymouth, and he’s determined to get the last word in.

He’s scheduled a council meeting to clear away unfinished business - releasing the District Plan for public comment, deciding how to spend a $2 million surplus, and updating the provisions applying to sites of significance to Maori and archaeological sites.

Mr Judd didn’t stand again because of the backlash over his efforts to have Maori represented on the council.

He says he will remind councillors they voted for the change and then didn’t stand by him when the heat came on.

"Look out because i'll be standing with Maoridom to come back and challenge this council forever around looking at itself, about including Maori and telling our stories in a wider sense of the district and country about what fundamentally my ancestors did, how they did it and the consequences that we still live with today," he says.

Andrew Judd says on Monday he will continue trying to make Taranaki people see things more clearly, in his job as an option.

Polling in the local government elections closes at noon tomorrow, and people will need to take their ballots to the boxes in libraries and other venues set up by their councils.
