An update was published on the KCDC website at 10:22 pm and now all seats are contested except the Paekakariki Community Board where there are 4 vacancies and 4 candidates, so they all get the job.

The most notable departure in Waikanae is James Westbury who was the WCB chair for the last 3 years but is not standing again.

We have no idea who several of the candidates are.
