Wairarapa Voice

September 13, 2017 September 2017 No Comments

Wairarapa Voice steps up the petition calling for a poll on amalgamation of the three Wairarapa District Councils.
Wairarapa residents and ratepayers can now sign the petition at locations in all three districts – South Wairarapa, Carterton and Masterton. Wairarapa Voice has been pleased that the places people can sign include a wide range of cafes, bars, art galleries, libraries, offices and shops.
You can sign the South Wairarapa petition in Martinborough at Kitcheners, Pain and Kershaw, Martinborough Medical Centre and the Pirinoa Country Store.
A poll is initiated by a minimum of 10 per cent of the electors in any one of the Wairarapa districts.
A valid petition must be sent to the Local Government Commission before 11th October 2017, so we still have a month to gather signatures to ensure that the Carterton petition will meet the threshold of a minimum of 10 per cent of electors.
For more information, go to the Facebook page “Sign the Petition for a Wairarapa Poll” which will have information on the petition and where you can sign, or let us know how we can contact you, or go to the Wairarapa Voice website www.wairarapavoice.nz.
