Rival plan for Garden Place

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Morning everyone,

Another plan to remodel Garden Place has emerged, this time from Chow:Hill director Brian Squair.

Hamilton City Council is proposing an almost $4 million spend on reworking Garden Place, though the deputy mayor says it's "absolutely not done and dusted".

Squair says he's not touting for work but Hamilton could have bigger goals for its central-city square.

So, if you had the levers of power, what would you do to Garden Place?

Meet the Candidates meetings - HCC by-election

Jamie Neighbourly Lead from Chartwell

Due to a number of people telling me they don't know the candidates, I have decided to host two Meet the Candidates events for the upcoming Hamilton City Council by-election.

The Hamilton East ward was left vacant after the passing of highly respected Councillor Philip Yeung.


Event 1:
St Johns Methodist Church
Wednesday, 7 February, 2018
20 Wellington Street, Hamilton East

Event 2:
The Quadrant Pub and Kitchen
Thursday, 8 February 2018
391 Victoria Street, Hamilton
6 pm: Casual meet and greet over dinner and drinks with candidates and Jamie. Each person will pay for their own dinner/drinks. The “official” part starts at 7:30pm

15 candidates have put their name forward for the Hamilton East ward. All candidates have been invited to attend both Meet the Candidates events.

Friday 26 January: Postal voting period opens
​Saturday 17 February: Election Day and preliminary results

If you would like to hear more about the candidates, in order to decide who would best represent you, please feel free to attend either event. You are welcome to bring your friends and families too.

Warm regards,

Jamie Strange - Hamilton-based Labour list MP
