North Waikato News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Let the race to Elec­tion Day 2016 be­gin.

Nom­i­na­tions have closed, and as Caitlin re­ports on page 1 to­day, we now know who will be seek­ing the North Waikato vote.

In­cum­bent Whanga­marino Ward coun­cil­lor, Jan Sedg­wick, has been re-elected un­op­posed, so she can re­lax.

In con­trast it’s go­ing to be a busy month and a bit ahead for the other po­lit­i­cal hope­fuls vy­ing for the lo­cal vote to sit on the Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil, lo­cal health board, com­mu­nity boards and Waikato may­oralty.

We will do our bit to keep you in the loop of who is stand­ing on what plat­forms, and why they reckon they de­serve your vote.

Closer to Elec­tion Day, Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 8, well will run ques­tion­naires that we have asked the can­di­dates to com­plete.

This will go some way to­wards help­ing our North Waikato News read­ers make an in­formed de­ci­sion for lo­cal body elec­tions 2016.
