Public Meeting

7:30 pm Monday 30 September
Selwyn College Theatre
Kohimarama Road

- Phil Goff and John Tamihere debate the issues

- Candidates for Orakei Ward Councillor make their pitches

Voting papers for elected local body positions including Mayor, Local Councillor, Local Board, Health Board and others are out now, but who do you vote for?  What do the candidates stand for?  Which candidates support policies that you like?

We have organised a public meeting to allow the leading contenders for Mayor and the 3 contenders for the Orakei Ward Councillor seat to outline their policies and answer your questions.  Your next Mayor will likely be one of these contenders,and your next Councillor will definitely be one of these three people, so this is your chance to hear what they have to say and make up your minds.

Come and join us at this meeting to help you decide who to vote for.
