Western Leader - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

With the elec­tion loom­ing we are tak­ing se­ri­ously here at the Western Leader our re­spon­si­bil­ity to bring the pub­lic in­for­ma­tion that they need to know to cast their vote.

To­day’s is the first in a se­ries of spe­cial is­sues in which we are shin­ing the light on dif­fer­ences be­tween the can­di­dates stand­ing in west Auck­land’s five gen­eral elec­torates.

You will find their re­sponses on eu­thana­sia and abor­tion on the fol­low­ing pages are var­ied.

In the com­ing weeks we will also be look­ing at whether they see crime as a prob­lem and what they would do about it.

Then we will be ask­ing them on what they think of trans­port in their elec­torates, the le­gal­ity of cannabis, hous­ing and poverty, and whether they see im­mi­gra­tion as a prob­lem.

I hope that you find these edi­tions in­for­ma­tive as you con­sider who you would like to rep­re­sent you.
