Hastings Mayoral candidates will debate on Sunday
Just organized on Friday …
Havelock North Concerned Citizens will be sponsoring a candidate event for the Hastings mayoral candidates, and the Havelock North ward candidates, on Sunday October 3 at 7p at the Havelock North Community Centre.
HNCC sponsored a similar candidates’ event in 2007.
On Sunday evening, mayoral candidates will make opening presentations, question each other directly, and take questions from the floor.
This will be the only in-depth face-off amongst these candidates in the campaign.
