The voting papers have been posted and you will soon have the choice of who will be your Councillor for the next three years. I have successfully represented the Newcastle ward for the past 12 years and now hold very senior positions within Council. My vast experience in finance, resource management, alcohol licensing, and roading to name a few, as well as advocating for individuals and communities is respected within and between councils. I ask for your support to remain your advocate. Please vote Noel Smith and re-elect your effective voice at Waikato District Council.
Our children are being exposed to an average of 46 ads for unhealthy products every day (27 junk food, 12 alcohol, and seven gambling).
These things are the leading causes of cancer, obesity, diabetes, mental illness and many social harms.
Should our Government be doing more to protect our children from this advertising? What should be done?
