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.
