Wellington mayoral candidates come face to face in debate

10:35 am on 17 September 2019

Mayoral candidates Justin Lester, Andy Foster and Diane Calvert are in the studio to debate the issues Wellington voters are facing.

Local body voting papers start arriving in letter boxes at the end of this week, and on 12 October we'll know who's going to be in charge of our local councils and boards.

Morning Report has been looking at the mayoralty races in some of the main centres.

This morning the programme looked at Wellington, where Justin Lester is seeking a second term as mayor, and was the studio along with two main rivals - veteran councillor Andy Foster, and Diane Calvert.
