Responses Whau board CANDIDATES…and why should we vote for them!
ACA invited all the 26 election candidates for the Whau Local Board to take part in a questionnaire. We asked locals on Facebook to contribute what they would like to ask them and as of yesterday this is the responses we have received so far.
Here were the Questions asked:
