Local Body Elections

Local government elections will soon be taking place. The people who are elected will make decisions that affect the daily life of New Zealanders and will impact upon the kiwifruit industry.

NZKGI wants to ensure that Growers have the best possible information so they can make informed decisions when voting. On 21 August, questions were sent to Mayoral and Councillor nominees with email addresses that the electoral offices supplied on a range of topics that have relevance to the kiwifruit industry.

As nominees’ answers are received, (or lack of)  they will be placed in the links below according to the respective region:


Far North


Hawkes Bay




Western Bay
