Hamilton Mayoral Hustings

Waikato Cathedral hosts hustings event for Hamilton City Mayor candidates

The Waikato Cathedral of St Peter in Hamilton hosted an afternoon hustings event for the Hamilton City Mayoral Elections.  The seven candidates for Mayor answered questions put to them by Bishop Helen-Ann before an audience of 260.  Dean Peter Rickman welcomed those who gathered from across the city, and Cathedral Kaumatua Canon Pine Campbell gave a mihi.  The candidates had been sent three core questions in advance: (1) what is your vision for Hamilton?; (2) what do you see the role of faith communities to be in a healthy city?; (3) what is your response to the title given to the theme of this hustings event: 'Seek the welfare of the city?'.  In addition, candidates were asked a series of unseen questions which had been submitted by faith leaders from across the city.  Questions asked included: 'who are the most influential voices in your world, because those voices will determine largely the thoughts you have and bring?'  And 'how can the city strengthen neighbourhoods?'  Those attending the event had a further opportunity to meet and talk to candidates over refreshments in the Cathedral Centre following the hustings event.
