Citizens Assembly coming to Wellington

From Nights, 10:25 pm on 17 July 2023

This month randomly selected Wellingtonians will receive an invitation to take park in what is thought to be one of New Zealand's first Citizens' Assembly. Much like a jury, a citizens' assembly is a group of regular people chosen by chance to represent their community. To explain how this is all going to work and why the council is taking this approach, Nights speaks to Wellington City councillor Rebecca Matthews.
