Health Cuts Hurt Number Up For CDHB Election


Health Cuts Hurt Number Up For CDHB Election

“Health Cuts Hurt is aligning itself with the advertising round STV elections by kitting our five candidates in numbered and named rugby jerseys for the CDHB elections,” Chairperson of patient lobby group, Health Cuts Hurt, Eleanor Carter said today.

“20% of votes in the last Health Board elections were invalid mostly due to voters ticking boxes rather than numbering the candidates from 1 onwards as STV requires,” said Eleanor Carter.

“Most Cantabrians know Dan Carter’s number is 10,” said Eleanor Carter. “Health Cuts Hurt hopes to use this link to communicate to Cantabrians that it is easy to vote correctly in the Health Board elections. See photo below.”

“Health Cuts Hurt candidates will be seen round the province from this Friday in their red and black named and numbered jerseys,” said Eleanor Carter. “Out ‘tight five’ are ranked 1 to 5 and comprise Heather and Eleanor Carter, Tom Dowie, Andrew McKenzie and Gary Watts.”
