Sustainable Waikato announcement:
Sustainable Waikato has recently sent all candidates for Hamilton City Council and Waikato Regional Council elections a questionnaire to complete. The questions are framed around our sustainability vision and the attributes we would hope councillors would have. Responses to these questions will be assessed along with other publicly available information on each candidate, according to strict criteria, to determine whether we will endorse the candidate for the upcoming election. We expect to announce the candidates that we are endorsing by September 19.
We invite you to visit our website to follow the progress of our assessment so that it may help inform you for your voting decisions at the elections. You can also follow us on Facebook and become a supporter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you find our information useful as we strive towards a sustainable Waikato!
