Poll: Would a Māori tourism centre by the gardens keep visitors in Hamilton longer?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

A proposed Māori tourism centre near Hamilton Gardens is seen by some as a game changer for the city.
Do you agree?
Waikato Tainui has made the suggestion to Hamilton City Council as the council nuts out a revamp of the gardens.
Mayor Andrew King said a busload of tourists visiting the gardens would also be able to pre-book a cultural show at the same place.
He hoped it would encourage more visitors into overnight stays, instead of a stop on the way to another destination.

Walks before talks for new mayor

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Morning neighbours,

Hamilton's newly minted mayor Paula Southgate "didn't become mayor to overturn the apple cart and bring all my own unique projects to the table".

Instead, she's going to take a couple of days to unwind and plan before getting stuck in.

What do you think of the election results with a new mayor and councillors?
