Over 200 voters packed the West End Hall, 7 September, to hear and meet all the Rangitata Electorate candidates. Each party had 10 minutes to put their views and answer questions from the floor. The audience got quite lively at times to show support for their idea of pressing issues.
The Rotary Club of Timaru North is apolitical and committed to strengthening our community in the fairest way possible.. Accordingly we don't support any particular candidate or issues that may affect the outcome of such elections.
