Meet the Candidates

General Election Thursday 1 October (note change of date)

Wellington Central Candidates Meeting

This year’s General Election in September will have a lot of interest in more ways than one, coming out of Covid 19 and moving into economic recovery, and the referendum issues we will be asked to vote on.

The Rotary Club of Karori and the Karori Association are jointly organising a candidate’s public meeting in the Wellington Central seat at the Karori Baptist Church (note change of venue) Thursday 1 October, at 7pm.

This is about a week before ballot papers are posted out for the Elections.

For further enquiries please contact David Watt, Rotary Club of Karori 027 2466 339.

As an endeavour to put questions to candidates that are of interest to a range of people we invite those planning to attend to submit questions in advance.

Having 9 speakers we have limited time for questions so in this way we can focus on issues that have a degree of support.

We will bring like questions together but the Chair retains the right not to invite a question to be put if there is little support of a like nature; also, if time becomes limited.

The chair will decide if questions will be put to one or more candidates.

Please submit your question by no later than Tuesday 29 September, along with providing your contact details to Kay Webster, Manager, Karori Community Centre manager@karoricommunitycentre.org.nz
