Community meets the Candidates

Ahead of the local body elections, a good crowd of community members and local body candidates filled the Crosslands Lounge at the Mary Thomas Centre in Takapuna as ANCAD (Auckland North Community and Development) hosted a forum for the community to meet Council and Local Board candidates.  In a valuable opportunity to understand the policies of independent candidates as well as those standing on the several tickets represented on the Shore, the audience heard Mark Thomas, mayoral candidate, six of the 12 candidates for the North Shore ward seats on Council, and Devonport-Takapuna and Kaipatiki Local Board candidates outline what they hope to achieve for community development and the not-for-profit sector on the Shore.
