Christchurch mayoral contenders go head to head on rates, asset sales and stadium issues

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch's increasing rates burden, asset sales and the need for a stadium look set to be big issues this election.

Three mayoral contenders went head to head in front of 300 people at a forum hosted by Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce at The Piano on Wednesday.

Incumbent Lianne Dalziel talked about the need to bring rates increases down, while businessman Darryll Park insisted he could make zero rates increases work and John Minto pushed for rate rises to be in line with inflation.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Ilam

"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”
