Did you know David Bennett owns dairy farms and a drystock property?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

He's been asked if that means he'd benefit from National's plans to scrap freshwater regulations.

National leader Judith Collins said freshwater regulations would be "gone by lunchtime" if the party got into power.

Missing Posts

Neighbourly is looking too boring, where are the Council & Government Posts from the good Neighbourly people? Neighbourly needs to have these posts so we all can voice our peace on them. Please put them back in the system.

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.
