BARNETT IN BY-ELECTION
Kirstyn Barnett has put her hand up to run for the Waimakariri District Council in the Rangiora Ashley by-election. Barnett served two terms on the council, from 2010 to 2016, but lost out in the 2016 election. The by-election comes following the death of the late Peter Allen in August. Barnett is the first candidate to come forward ahead of voting in December.
