Hi everyone
My name is Emma Twaddell. I have put my name forward to represent the Innes Ward on the Papanui/Innes Community Board. I'm standing because the world needs to change and I can help us all make that happen starting from within our homes and communities.
People's happiness is as important as climate change.

Hopefully you all support this move and will help me be successful. Word of mouth wins elections.

Billions of construction dollars have been pumped into Christchurch since the devastating 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

Nine years on, the rebuilt central city has emerged as the most modern in New Zealand. But there are still major gaps, most noticeably unfinished Crown anchor projects such as the metro sports facility, convention centre and a new stadium.

In a contentious opinion piece, travel writer Brook Sabin said instead of finding a world-class central city taking shape, the prevailing feeling was one of sadness.

What do you think? Is Christchurch sad and soulless or progressive and beautiful?
