A daring 8-hour rescue operation has rescued a dog trapped on a Te Araroa cliff

Ask all council candidates

LETTER

In reply to Winston Moreton, asking for the three mayoral candidates (nominations have not yet closed) to declare their pre-election position on supporting the reducing of power costs . . . I am surprised (probably along with many others) that he has not put his question also to the candidates to be councillors, as the mayor, plus the councillors, elect the trust that ultimately controls the direction power costs go.

The mayor only has one vote, the councillors have 13. Even I can work out 13 will always beat one.
