Tena Koutou ko Robert Bradley toku ingoa.

I am the eldest son of Jenny and Graham (Crunch) Bradley. I have 6 children and 7 grandchildren. My grandparents are Mereana Taukiri (nee Subritzky) and Hone Te Hiko Neho. My Ngati Kuri Ancestry goes back to Te Rau Karora, Wiri Te Rau, Paea Subritzky (nee Te Rau) and William Subritzky.

My parents were historians in their own right and with their knowledge I have taken a keen interest to continue the work that they started. I have attended and supported the outcomes of several Iwi hui as we progressed towards the settlement of our Treaty Claims in 2014. The return of Te Rerenga Wairua, Te Paki Station, Land at Kapowairua and Mokaikai were the highlights for me. We now have the opportunities to develop and build our future with these assets.

This progress has encouraged me to register my interest to be a candidate for the Ngati Kuri constituent in the upcoming elections of the Ngati Kuri Trust Board. I have always been a keen supporter of several community projects and clubs. Over the years I have successfully managed 2 family owned businesses and continue to do so today. I believe I have the experience and energy to represent your interests as a trustee on the Ngati Kuri Trust Board.      

Kiaora koutou katoa
