FROM YOUR PA­PER

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

With the elec­tion just 24 days away, many of you will be think­ing of how you will vote, the di­rec­tion how so­ci­ety is headed and what you ex­pect from our politi­cians.

The more cyn­i­cal will say ‘not much’ but in fact we should ex­pect cer­tain be­hav­iour and stan­dards from them. We want them to be hon­est, af­ter all they are mak­ing our laws. Cor­rup­tion is not a part of our so­ci­ety but to main­tain that ev­ery­one has to be vig­i­lant.

We want them to make de­ci­sions that will be best for all sec­tors of the com­mu­nity and we want New Zealan­ders to make their con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety. It is not the govern­ment’s role to pro­vide for fam­i­lies but it is its role to en­sure that fam­i­lies are able to help them­selves.

To­day we ask three peo­ple how they are vot­ing in the com­ing elec­tion and we got three dif­fer­ent re­sponses. It seems that this elec­tion will be dif­fi­cult to call.

To help you stay in­formed the Mid­week will speak to can­di­dates on your be­half and bring you their an­swers to our ques­tions.
