What's your message to Auckland's newly elected councillors?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Rodney Times

Hi neighbours, As Phil Goff is elected as Auckland mayor for a second three year term, a North Shore couple have a message for the incoming council and local board: invest in infrastructure over cutting rates. What issues would you like to see the council take action on this term in your community? Please write NFP if you don't want your comment used in stories.

Come along and join the fun as we celebrate the official opening of Stages 3 & 4 of the Kamo Shared Path. Walk, run, ride, skate, skoot the new shared path (6.4km round trip to Fisher Terrace, Kamo).

The road-separated route connects together the communities, schools and key facilities such as:
• the Auckland University Campus,
• Whangarei City Centre and
• Kensington Park.

The shared path is one of three (Onerahi, Raumanga, Kamo) designed to get more Whangarei people off the road and more able to move around by cycling or walking.

As well as creating safe links for school children and workers the routes should ease pressure on the city’s roads and increase health and wellbeing in the community.

Do you want to know the criminal history of candidates?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Northland MP Matt King is floating a member's bill which would require the criminal history of election candidates to be published, if they were convicted of a crime punishable by two or more years' jail time. What do you think? Would it change the way you vote?
