TCV Weekly News: 30th July 2020

Kia ora koutou

Good Morning All!

Another crazy week for me with our network meeting for August coming around pretty fast again.
10th August 2020, 12.30-1.30pm at the Gisborne District Council Chambers.

The Election Candidates got sent our questions this week and we are already receiving replies back.  The responses will be in our next newsletter and up for discussion at our August network meeting. We emailed as many candidates as we could locate emails for. 
The questions we asked are as follows:

Please briefly introduce yourself 

Q1 - Why are you running & what do you most want to achieve if elected? 

Q2 - What does a Thriving Community that supports wellbeing look like to you & in what measurable way do you intend to support the wellbeing of Tairāwhiti? 

Q3 – The current Goverment has released significant funds to Business, Sports and Recreation, Food Banks, Mental Health etc so if put into Government how will the Candidate's Party ensure smaller to medium sized NGO service providers etc without Government contracts in health be supported to continue their mahi? 

Have a great rest of the week!
