FROM THE EDI­TOR

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

This week we con­tinue our lo­cal elec­tion cov­er­age with profiles on the ten can­di­dates in the Western ward, P6 and 7.

They are vy­ing for two seats, but this year there is only one in­cum­bent, mean­ing there will be a new face from the west at the coun­cil table.

We are also fea­tur­ing our third may­oral can­di­date pro­file. In keep­ing with the Western ward theme, we chat to Mike Dun­can, P3.

A week out from the elec­tion it seemed like Euon Mur­rell would be elected un­op­posed, how­ever now there are six can­di­dates.

Our profiles of the re­main­ing three can­di­dates will be pub­lished in the lead up to the elec­tion.

We will also put ques­tions on Porirua’s big is­sues to the can­di­dates be­fore the elec­tion, so make sure you email us or call us with what you think your may­oral can­di­date should be talk­ing about.

Vot­ing documents will be de­liv­ered from Septem­ber 21.

I en­cour­age you to en­gage with the elec­tions and have your say.
