Nominations for local government elections
With only a week until nominations close for the local government elections, Council encourages anyone planning on standing to lodge their completed papers as soon as possible.
The nomination period closes at 12pm midday on Friday 16 August, however there are often errors or omissions in the nomination papers and if potential candidates leave it too late to lodge them, it may not allow adequate time to sort any issues.
To date only ten nominations have been received, including five for the Gisborne ward, one for Matakaoa-Waiapu and two for Hauora Tairawhiti. You can see the nominations to date here
