Local Government Elections 2016

The Wellington Chamber of Commerce asked council candidates a series of questions to gather their thoughts on key aspects of Wellington's governance for the upcoming term. Below are their responses, in their own words.  We offered all candidates, of both Wellington City Council and Greater Wellington Regional Council, the opportunity to respond, but some did not. 

The Chamber is an apolitical organisation, and we support policies, not candidates. To read an explanation of STV voting see here.
