Hi neighbours, my name is Brittany and I am a reporter with the Sunday Star Times. I'm looking for a family who's willing to talk to me about what local elections mean for them - the big issues that will affect you this year such as rates, transport etc.
Please get in touch if you are available to chat today or tomorrow - you must be willing to be quite open, as you may be asked about budget, household income and if you own your own home etc. To get in touch, email email@example.com (Please note that we will need you to be named and photographed for the story).
