NA TE TARI O TE ETITA
As a journalist, I am interested in politics and this election has certainly been one to watch. Working in the Rodney community, I am also really interested in issues that affect the community and would encourage everyone to vote on issues that matter to them. I voted early this week, and it was so easy. I normally cast my vote on election day - it kind of adds to the excitement - but this year we have too much on.
The Rodney Times has provided coverage of issues affecting the community this election, and what candidates have said about these issues. Our Facebook Live events with candidates have been well received and are still available to view on Facebook.com/RTimes. We have also done profiles on each of the candidates running for the Rodney seat, and hope these are useful as you decide who to give your vote to.
