FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Christchurch Mail - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

In case you hadn’t no­ticed, it’s elec­tion year. We’re get­ting down to the busi­ness end with vot­ing pa­pers get­ting posted on Septem­ber 11.

In with your vot­ing pa­pers, you’ll get the stan­dard head shot of the can­di­dates and their pro­file. So this year, we’re try­ing some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent.

In­stead of putting pro­files in our pages, we first asked you, dear read­ers, what the big is­sues were.

We then took the top three, and posed these, as broad as we could, to each of the can­di­dates.

This week, we kick off with the good old elec­tion year favourite, health.

Each can­di­date was emailed the for­mat and the top­ics last week, and were given the same dead­line to pro­vide 150 words on the topic which we would whit­tle down to in­clude in our ar­ti­cle.

So, for your en­light­en­ment, we present to you this week your can­di­dates and their state­ments on health.

Take note, and no mat­ter what else you do, vote.
