BayBuzz offered its megaphone to Napier mayoral candidates Barbara Arnott and Clifford Church.
As with the Hastings candidates, all of whom seized the opportunity to communicate with voters, we provided a set of detailed questions, to be followed up with one-on-one interviews.
Mayor Arnott completed her response and gave us the interview. A broad range of issues was covered, from Napier’s style of governance, to Marineland, to the meaning of “managed economic growth,” to mistakes she’s made and her priorities for the future, if re-elected.
Mr. Church chose to engage in an online interrogation of BayBuzz, culminating in his decision not to address the questions or conduct an interview. Take that, Napier voters!
