Te Tatau o Te Arawa, Pakihi Ora, Te Arawa FM/ The Heat and Local Gecko Productions joined forces to create virtual sessions to meet candidates standing for the Rotorua Lakes Council.
We invited ward candidates to take up the challenge to contribute a five minute kōrero about why they are standing as part of a live rolling session on 10 September 2022. The live coverage can be found here. (Due to other commitments some ward candidates were unavailable to participate)
For convenience, we've isolated their kōrero which you can watch by clicking on each candidate's photo below.
We also invited mayoral candidates to participate in another online session (20 September 2022) to share their kōrero, which can be found at the bottom of this page. Presentations by some candidates are missing as they were unavailable during the live recording.
A full list of the 2022 candidates for Rotorua Lakes Council can be seen here and you can read the candidates profiles here. Check out more information about the Council election via the 'Vote 2022 Local Election' section.
