Council Candidate Kōrero and Lower Hutt Mayoral Debate

On Monday 12 September we welcomed a lot of our community to the Lower Hutt Event Centre. Many of you came to kōrero with council candidates standing in the 2022 Local Elections and many stayed for the Mayoral Debate which followed.

Questions were submitted online and in-person prior to the debate, to inform the debate topics and there was an opportunity for live questions from the audience at the end.

You can view the recorded live stream here or on our Facebook page.
