Buller District Council

Meet the Candidates

30th August, 2016

Buller District Council has planned “Meet the Candidates” evenings throughout the Buller, in the run up to the local authority elections.

All candidates within Buller including the Buller Development West Coast Candidates, and those for the West Coast District Health Board (Which is voted on Coast wide) have been invited to attend as many meetings as they wish.

The meetings have been planned to be held in five various townships, with each having its own facilitator.

The voting papers for all electors are due to be distributed from 16 September, so there will be an opportunity for voters to size up the prospective candidates at these forums.

Meetings will be held as follows:

Westport–  NBS Theatre Monday 12 September

Karamea– Karamea RSA Tuesday 13 September

Ngakawau– Northern Buller Community Resource Centre Wednesday 14 September

Punakaiki– Pancake Tearooms Monday 26 September

Reefton– Reefton Club (Workingmens Club) Tuesday 27 September

All meetings will be at 7:00pm

Apart from the evening in Karamea, Buller residents will also have the opportunity to meet the Council’s new CEO, Andy Gowland-Douglas.
