Suspicious activity

Angela from Forest Lake

Young white male long blonde hair marking pavement with chalk design outside random houses. Asked him why he did that for and he responded because i feel like it. Went down to get his photo but he was gone rather quickly... Be vigilant especially with cars parked outside

We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Hamilton Press.
