West Auckland Justices of the Peace have honoured one of their long-time members, Assid Corban, O.B.E., J.P. who has retired from Ministerial Duties after 47 years’ service.
Mr Corban, accompanied by wife Miriam, was guest of honour at this week’s meeting of the West Auckland J.P.s’ Support Group where Immediate Past President of the Auckland JP Association, David Grove, presented him with his Justice of the Peace - Retired badge.
Peter King, organiser of the Group, paid tribute to Assid Corban’s significant and long-serving contribution to West Auckland, not only as J.P. for 47 years but as Mayor and Councillor of the old Henderson Borough and then as first Mayor of Waitakere City in 1989 and other positions under the new administration.
Local MP Alfred Ngaro conveyed messages of thanks and goodwill from local MP Paula Bennett and the Prime Minister, John Key. Assid Corban, replying, thanked all those who had given him opportunities to provide service to West Auckland communities throughout his adult life and he paid tribute to his wife, Miriam, for her enduring support.
