Election 2020: Hamilton West candidates for local MP

Sarah MacKenzie Reporter from Waikato Times

Hey neighbours,

In the lead up to the 2020 election, Stuff is keeping voters up to date with what’s happening in their electorate, through Neighbourly. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates in the running to be Hamilton West's MP.

At the October 17 election, New Zealanders will have the opportunity to choose their regional spokesperson.

Through the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) voting system, those enrolled can vote for the party they want as well as a local representative.

Why does my MP matter?

The person elected will be the voice for your region in Parliament. If you’re having trouble getting entitlements or dealing with Government departments, they can help. If your community needs funding for certain projects or activities, or there isn’t enough healthcare in the area, the elected MP can step in and help.

HCC water leak Normandale Rd NOT fixed in years

Sandra from Normandale

Adverts tell me to conserve water etc.
SO why every time I contact HCC councillors, staff etc do they NOT fix the leak on Normandale Rd properly?
Last week at the bottom of my drive were trucks, diggers and traffic control with a loud speaker telling of cutting off WATER to our houses.
THEY put it all back together and the leak is worse than ever.
It is a fire hydrant and was used for a house fire August 2020.
