Local government: the figures

From The Panel, 4:35 pm on 7 August 2019

Michael Fallows has written a piece on Stuff based on figures from Local Government NZ on who we are electing to these roles.

The figures also look at the reasons for candidates standing in the roles as well as the age and ethnicity of councillors.

Andrew Cardow, a senior lecturer at Massey University's School of Management, says it tends to be the same people taking these roles time and time again. We ask him to explain.
