Gareth MorganPolitics

You should have recieved your voting forms in the mail, so it’s your chance to have a say. Make sure you get informed, and vote in the local body elections.

To help you do this we have talked to Wellington’s 3 main mayoral contenders about the major issues facing the city. We wanted to give them a chance to elaborate on their ideas in more detail than the usual soundbite allows.

Justin Lester discusses economic development, homelessness and the controversial airport extension.

Jo Coughlan talks transport, including the balance between cars and public transport.

Nick Leggett sets out his ideas on how to involve local communities in the decisions that affect them, and his views on  Predator Free Wellington.

We also recommend these voting guides from Gen Zero and the PHA.
