Election 2020: Rangitīkei candidates for local MP

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Feilding-Rangitīkei Herald

Hey neighbours,

In the lead up to the 2020 election, Stuff is keeping voters up to date with what’s happening in their electorate, through Neighbourly. Here’s what you need to know about the candidates in the running to be Rangitīkei's MP.

At the October 17 election, New Zealanders will have the opportunity to choose their regional spokesperson.

Through the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) voting system, those enrolled can vote for the party they want as well as a local representative.

Why does my MP matter?

The person elected will be the voice for your region in Parliament. If you’re having trouble getting entitlements or dealing with Government departments, they can help. If your community needs funding for certain projects or activities, or there isn’t enough healthcare in the area, the elected MP can step in and help.

Calling all Manawatu Artists!

Natasha from Ashhurst - Pohangina

Did you know that you can still be involved in the Manawatu Art Expo?

All artist bays are now sold out but there is still an opportunity to display and sell your work at the Manawatu Art Expo which runs 16 - 18 July at the Palmerston North Convention Centre.

You can still apply to submit 1 - 5 pieces of work (up to 1m each piece) which will be displayed for sale on your behalf. It's a great opportunity if you don't have a large body of work to exhibit, or if you just want to dip your toe in the water in terms of showing your work.

The registration fee is $35 and then a handling fee of $6 per artwork. A commission of 30% is charged on all sold work.

Registration closes on the 31st of May.

Application for Registration: manawatuartexpo.files.wordpress.com...

Registration Information: manawatuartexpo.files.wordpress.com...

The Manawatu Art Expo is an annual event run by the Feilding and District Art Society.
