Interested in being the Mayor or a Councillor? Join us for an online info session.

If you're curious about standing but not sure what’s involved, we're hosting an online candidate information webinar on Wednesday 22 June, 5pm* at mpdc.nz/elections.

We’ll share what local government is all about, the rules for campaigning and some of the skills required to undertake such an important role for your community. We’ll also give you an overview of what’s involved in being Mayor or a Councillor and an electoral officer will be on hand to answer any of your burning questions. 

This will be a great session open to anyone – there is absolutely no commitment to stand.

Alternatively, send your questions through to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will ensure your questions are raised and the session recorded for those who are unable to attend.

We hope to see you online!

* This was originally published as starting at 4pm. The correct time is 5pm.
