From the Kaiapoi Residents Noticeboard… a page set up to inform local residents…
Here are my answers to their questions:
Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community Board Candidates – Information for Kaiapoi voters
Every candidate has been asked:
Why should people vote for them
What are their priorities
What are their strengths
What is their favourite thing about Kaiapoi
Today I’m posting the candidates for community board, tomorrow the
councillors and on Wednesday the Mayoral candidates. Feel free to
comment on the images.
The same email was sent to everyone, and the attached images are the community board candidates who responded:
Community board candidates also running but not presented in the information:
All candidate statements can be found here: https://www.waimakariri.govt.nz/your-c…/local-body-elections
It’s election time, we’ve all seen the hoardings/signs around town, and some people have been getting info in their letter boxes. It’s important to know about the candidates before casting your vote – who aligns with your values and who will champion what is important to you and what’s best for Kaiapoi.
So after reading a few comments, I’ve gone and surveyed all the candidates running for a spot in governance in our local area! The booklet that comes with the election papers is not that easy to digest, and the candidate statements online are very generic. I hope these are somewhat useful and relevant! Only posted in the order the forms were received.
