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.

It’s a time for fine-tuning your skills and pushing the boundaries, catching up with your mates and heading off on new adventures at the drop of a hat! No, we’re not talking about your 20s, we’re talking about your retirement.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .

63 percent of submitters opposed paid commuter parking on the city fringe, however, Council voted to introduce paid commuter parking in 2024. No details of how much will be charged, and where, that will need to be worked out. It will go to the public for consultation and will ultimately be approved or rejected.
Why consult again?
Can they not accept that 63% are opposed?
Southgate “I would have preferred that we would have been able to respond to the ratepayers’ requests to reduce rates ... however that is democracy. BS
Ignored the requests?
84 percent supported bulldozing the aging Founders theatre – Council voted (10 out of the 12) to give six months of “breathing room” to the Theatre of the Impossible Trust (TOTI), to put together a full proposal and find $10 million to renovate and repurpose the building as a community centre.
The theatre has been closed since 2016.
Has TOTI been sitting on their hands for six years that they need another six months?
Angela O’Leary was not comfortable with the 8.9 percent rates increase “But we have responded through this whole process to what the community has asked for”.
No they didn’t.
What a waste of time, money and effort going through the consultation process. That is democracy, what the community asked for and giving breathing space to TOTI statements are pure prevarication and against the majority. It is not democracy.

Have you seen this amazing garden?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.

New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
