60 JPs from Hibiscus Coast gathered recently to share morning tea with Associate Justice Minister Chester Borrows and local MP Mark Mitchell.
Discussion turned to a topic often talked over by JPs lately - why are there so many inactive JPs and why aren't they coming forward to help those who are providing services, particularly now there are Support Groups, Service Desks and organised training sessions.
Auckland Association supports MPs who have said they will write to JPs reminding them of the responsibilities they undertook when appointed.
The Minister agrees with this approach saying JPs should be given an option: serve their community or stand down, becoming a JP Retired.
