Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

This is the last week peo­ple will have a chance to have a ma­jor say on how the district is run for the next three years. Vot­ing in the lo­cal govern­ment elec­tion will con­clude on Oc­to­ber 8. This is a chance to elect a group of peo­ple re­spon­si­ble for look­ing af­ter the de­vel­op­ment of Mata­mata and com­mu­ni­ties of the Mata­mataPi­ako district. In Mata­mata, early fig­ures show voter turnout is track­ing lower than pre­vi­ous years, but there’s still time to turn the fi­nal re­sult around. By now every­one would have re­ceived their voter in­for­ma­tion packs in the mail, con­tain­ing in­for­ma­tion on each can­di­date for the Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil, as well as the Waikato District Health Board and the Waikato Re­gional Coun­cil. There has been some ques­tion­ing around what the can­di­dates re­ally stand for, what their poli­cies are and so on. This can be settled quickly. Just look the can­di­dates up in the phone book and give them a call. A few straight ques­tions may get the an­swers you’re look­ing for.
