FROM THE EDITOR

North Shore Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Par­lia­ment has risen and mem­bers are re-ap­ply­ing for their jobs, in com­pe­ti­tion with politi­cians from the other par­ties. To help you de­cide who to vote for, and feel in­spired to vote, the North Shore Times has pub­lished a va­ri­ety of ar­ti­cles. Top­ics in­clude: what it means that North­cote is a bell­wether elec­torate; roles of MPs ver­sus lo­cal boards, cul­mi­nat­ing with out­go­ing East Coast Bays MP Murray McCully re­flect­ing on changes in his MP role over the years (page 12), and even what changes chil­dren would make if they could vote (page 3). We have also live-streamed panel in­ter­views with can­di­dates from the North Shore elec­torates on Face­book where we asked them about is­sues you have told us are im­por­tant, in­clud­ing hous­ing, de­vel­op­ment and trans­port. We have writ­ten sto­ries from these in­ter­views and will write more. So visit all our plat­forms for help­ful elec­tion news, in­clud­ing Face­book @ShoreTimes, Neigh­bourly.co.nz, Stuff.co.nz and even In­sta­gram. Plus, we will con­tinue to bring you cov­er­age in these pages. - Jodi Yeats
