New Plymouth councillor Chong stirring the pot again

New Plymouth District Council councillor Murray Chong is known for his radical views and is often in the spotlight for all the wrong things.

In January, Chong shared his view that he only sung the English version of the national anthem because it was the “original”.

After being censured by New Plymouth Mayor Neil Holdom, he was asked to apologise for the remarks made in the Facebook post.

He’s now sharing his view on Te Ramanui O Ruaputahanga which is the Hawera based new, yet to be built cultural and arts center that has recently had a boost in funding by the TSB community trust of $2.8m.

In another post on social media, Chong criticised the name claiming “it’s far to long for anyone that wants to say it”.

Murray Chong’s campaign slogan “is he says it as he sees it”…

Even if it get himself in hot water.
