Candidates out and about
South Cantabrians will get plenty of opportunities to quiz the region's mayoral and council candidates in the next few weeks.
Several "meet the candidate" events will be held, as contenders in the local government elections vie for seats at council tables.
Mackenzie District residents can talk to mayoral contenders Graeme Page and Claire Barlow at the community theatre in Fairlie on September 12, and the Twizel Events Centre on September 19.
Candidates for the three Opuha Ward council seats will also take part in the Fairlie event, and Pukaki Ward candidates will take part in the Twizel event.
Waimate residents can quiz mayoral candidates Craig Rowley and Sharyn Cain, and others standing for the council, at the St Andrews Hall on September 16 and Waimate Regent Theatre on September 18.
In Timaru, the Chamber of Commerce (September 12) and Transition Timaru (September 30) are hosting events to meet the candidates, and Anthony Brien has organised an event for all candidates, including himself, at the Caroline Bay Community Lounge on September 18.
