We’ve received a notice of this for  9.30 am on Friday 16th September.

A query has elicited that ‘it will be Waikanae Ward and district wide candidates.’

The problem is that while there are 4 candidates for the Waikanae Ward council seat, there are 14 candidates for the 5 District-wide seats; 18 candidates (assuming they all show up) is going to be a little crowded and won’t allow much time each.

We are writing to suggest that there be separate times for the two categories.
