Candidates meet again

Waitaki mayoral and council candidates have been called to another public meeting - this time a joint venture between North Otago Grey Power and the North Otago Ratepayers' Association.

The meeting on Saturday, September 18 at 1.30pm, in the Union Parish Hall, will give people the chanceto hear from those standing for the Waitaki mayoralty and the 18 hopefuls for the six positions as Oamaru ward councillors on the Waitaki District Council.

They will be given five minutes each to speak and then face questions.

Both groups organising the meeting said it would give voters the chance to find out what each candidate had as their main agenda, or hoped to achieve with ratepayers' dollars.

Federated Farmers has also organised a meeting for mayoral candidates and the five candidates for the two councillors in the Corriedale ward at the Five Forks Hall on Wednesday, starting at 7.30pm.
