Titirangi Residents’ Group Hosts ‘Meet the Mayors’

West Aucklanders will next month have their first opportunity to meet the top seven contenders in the upcoming Auckland Council Mayoral race.

Key contenders for the Auckland super city job are Phil Goff, Vic Crone and John Palino.

The Titirangi Resident and Ratepayers’ Assoc is hosting the event, which will provide local voters with a rare opportunity to meet the candidates and to grill them – if they can get a word in.

Association chair Mels Barton says she is delighted to have secured all the top candidates for the event, which will be MC’d by one of West Auckland’s most famous and colourful former Mayors, Sir Bob Harvey.

Dr Barton says the public will have the chance to find out just what the candidates believe are the important issues for Titirangi – and for them to find out what the locals really care about, before mail voting opens on September 16.

The Meet the Mayors event will be held after the 6.30pm start of the Association’s AGM on Tuesday 6 September, at the Titirangi Presbyterian Church on Atkinson Rd (opposite Titirangi Primary School).

Membership of the Association costs $10 per family, $5 per individual, payable on the door in cash. All are welcome – you do not have to be a member to attend. Refreshments will be provided.

Parking will be at a premium, so get there early. Parking at the venue is strictly limited. The Association suggests parking in the village and walking to the church.
